The Dovžan Gorge (Slovene: Dovžanova soteska or Dolžanova soteska) is a gorge in Slovenia that was carved by the Tržič Bistrica River. The river flows through unique waterfalls over large rounded blocks of white quartz conglomerate. These large blocks tumbled into the river from Pine Cliff (Slovene: Borova peč) above the right bank, named after the Scots pine that overgrows its steep slopes.
The gorge is picturesque because of the six high stone pillars known as the Kušpergar Towers (Slovene: Kušpegarjevi turni), where a climbing area has been set up. A geological trail, the Dovžan Gorge forest nature trail, a mountain trail, a scenic trail, and a trail to a Partisan underground press run through the gorge. In the small settlement of Čadovlje is the Jamenšnik farm with a flax drying oven (Slovene: paštba) with the year 1766 carved on it; it is an example of unique Karawanks architecture and ethnographic heritage. The gorge has been declared a natural monument of Slovenia and lies 3 kilometers (1.9 mi) north of Tržič, along the road from Tržič to Jelendol.

  • Nice gorge, you can swim in the water. A part of the walk is difficult, climbing 10 meter vertically.

  • Sadly the walking path was partially destroyed in October, according to signs on the info boards. We managed to see some of the gorge, but not much. Work is being done to repair the damage.

  • Nice walking path and pristine nature, a cold alpine river in the gordge. Different walking paths in the woods or you can walk on the road.
