Iconic climb in Slovenia. The pass was built by hand by the Russians in the first world war. Originally the whole road surface was made of cobblestones. Now only the curves on the north side (Kranska Gora) are paved with cobblestones. The rest is paved and the south side is covered with a perfect asphalt layer.
You can taste the history when you cycle here, you drive quietly from the now lively Kranska Gora along the lake up. Every curve is numbered, up and down in total 50 hairpin bends.
The 24 to the top regularly give beautiful views.
Above is a vast hiking and nature reserve. Many Slovenians go up to the top with their families to go into the mountains.
The view of the Soca valley is fantastic and you can before you go down cycle a little bit up on the left side so you can make beautiful pictures.
The descent is a feast, down you can turn around and take the road back, or you go to Bovec along the Soca river and climb to Log Port Magartom where you can drive towards Italy via the Predil or even just cycling up the Mangart so you after more than 11 kilometers on the highest mountain in Slovenia are.

Iconische klim in Slovenie. De pas is in de eerste wereldoorlog door de Russen met de hand aangelegd. Oorspronkelijk was het hele wegdek van kinderkoppen. Nu zijn alleen de bochten aan de noordzijde ( Kranska Gora) nog met kinderkopjes geplaveid. De rest is geasfalteerd en de zuid-zijde is met een perfecte asfaltlaag bedekt.
Je proeft de historie als je hier fietst, je rijdt rustig vanuit het inmiddels levendige Kranska Gora langs het meer omhoog. Iedere bocht is genummerd, up en down in totaal 50 haarspeld bochten.
De 24 naar de top geven regelmatig mooie vergezichten.
Boven is het een uitgestrekt wandel en natuurgebied. Veel Slovenen trekken naar boven om met het gezin de bergen in te gaan.
Het zicht op de Soca vallei is fantastisch en je kunt voordat je gaat afdalen nog een stukje omhoog fietsen aan de linkerzijde zodat je mooie foto's kunt maken.
De afdaling is een feest, beneden kun je omdraaien en de weg terug nemen, of je gaat naar Bovec langs de Soca rivier en klimt naar Log Port magartom alwaar je richting Italie kunt rijden via de Predil of nog even de Mangart opfietst zodat je na ruim 11 kilometer op de hoogste berg van Slovenie bent.

Nice climb in the Julian Alps with many cobblestone hairpins and beautiful mountain scenery. The first three kilometres from Krjanska Gora, partly along the Jasna lake, are quite flat, then the serious climbing starts. Along the way you'll pass a Russian chapel in memory of the Russian prisoners of war who built the pass in 1915. Only disadvantage is that the pass is a tourist attraction, so it is best to start very early. The descent on the other side is great. Posted the trip I made on wikiloc: https://nl.wikiloc.com/routes-fietsen/krjanska-gora-soca-valley-tarvisio-krjanska-gora-91-km-14833123

Mooie klim in de Julische Alpen met veel met kasseien geplaveide haarspeldbochten en prachtig berglandschap. De eerste drie kilometer vanaf Krjanska Gora, deels langs het Jasna meer, zijn vrij vlak, daarna begint het serieuze klimmen. Je passeert onderweg ook nog een Russische kapel die de Russische krijgsgevangen herdenkt die de de pas in 1915 hebben gebouwd. Enige nadeel is dat de pas een toeristische attractie is, dus je kunt het best net als ik erg vroeg starten. De afdaling aan de andere kant is geweldig.

Wonderful climb from Kranjska Gora, in Slovenia. Beautiful cobblestone hairpin bends give a wonderful nostalgic feeling. Besides that, the surroundings are great and inspiring with the sharp peaks: despite the just crossed 1600 meter altitude a real feeling of cycling in the high mountains!

Prachtige klim vanuit Kranjska Gora, in Slovenië. Prachtige, met kasseien geplaveide haarspeldbochten geven een heerlijk nostalgisch gevoel. Daarnaast is de omgeving geweldig en inspirerend met de scherpe toppen: ondanks de net overschreven 1600 meter hoogte een echt gevoel van fietsen in het hooggebergte!
