THE DEVILˈS PASSAGE AND GREEN SPRING
EXCURSION - THE DEVILˈS PASSAGE AND GREEN SPRING
Would you like to take a walk through 800 m long canyon and to visit „Manˈs Cottage“( Muževa hiša) and ride a bike at the same time? This is exactly for you!
The Devilˈs Passage is one of the most beautiful croatian canyons full of wild untouched romantic beauty.
What gives special attraction to it are wooden narrow bridges and stairs made of steel among 100 m high rocks. Through the narrow gorge murmur the mountains stream Jasle.
Wooden bridges, stairs, the sound of the stream and wild landscape are excellent reason for visiting this place.
We will start in Delnice and continue to mountain saddle Veliki Vodenjak where you can watch deep and beautiful canyon of the river Kupa valley or, if youˈre lucky ( during the clear weather), see the Slovenian Alps.
We will continue to Skrad and from there down a 4km long road approach Zeleni Vir (Green Spring).
At that moment, starting point of our tour is a mountain hut which is on the bottom of the small plateau on the heights of only 230 m above the sea level.
The Green Spring (345m) is waterfall which can be reached after 10 minutes walk from mountain hut.
It is located at the bottom of a shallow cave at the foot of a 70 m high cliff.

The reserve is protected landscape at 300-650 m above the sea level.
At the end of Devilˈs corridor is cave Muževa hišica ( Manˈs cottage) which is 200 m long and you need to have a battery if you want to visit it, because there is no light in it.
