Lakatnik 2024

Our "traditional" hike along the Lakatnik ecotrail in March. This is our fourth March hike in Lakatnik, starting in 2021 and it still managed to meet all of our high expectations. The place is very scenic, the climate mild, the trail - interesting and fairly easy, what's not to love.

As usual, we traveled to Lakatnik by train.

Knowing from previous experience, that the southern slopes of the gorge are usually warm and sunlit, this time we didn't overdress with thick winter jackets and hoodies and we guessed right - the weather was gorgeous, warm and sunny and our light spring jackets stayed in the backpacks.

Spring was way ahead in Lakatnik, with lots of various spring flowers and dogwood and wild plum trees in full bloom.

We had our picnic on this rock platform, overlooking the gorge and the village of Lakatnik

As usual, we went down the rocks along the alternative trail through the woods

Temnata dupka cave. This time we didn't go in, just around the entrance of the cave.

And back to the train station. I love this type of day trips and I hope we'll organize something similar soon.
