On the way up the Bovec–Vršič road, heading to the source of the Soča River. The Soča springs from a subterranean lake, through a cave, before flowing through a narrow gorge that soon spreads out.
There is a folk tale about the Soča source - According to legend, the gods Triglav, Jalovec and Mangrt once lived in Trenta. When an evil water spirit that flooded villages by spewing water made his way to Trenta, the gods decided to capture him and bind him in the valley. They left his mouth open just enough to irrigate the valley. Once his punishment is over, he will be released and the Soča will dry up. Let’s hope his punishment lasts for a lot longer!
