Vintgar gorge, Triglav National Park, Slovenia

The Bled Gorge (Slovene: Blejski Vintgar) or Vintgar Gorge (Soteska Vintgar) is a 1.6-kilometer (0.99 mi) gorge located in Slovenia in the Municipality of Gorje near the settlement of Zgornje Gorje, four kilometers northwest of Bled. Carved by the Radovna River, the sheer canyon walls are 50 to 100 meters (160 to 330 ft) high, with a total slope measuring about 250 m (820 ft). The stream has created many erosive features such as pools and rapids, and terminates in the picturesque 13 m (43 ft) Šum Falls (literally, ‘noisy falls’).
