Geocache Description:


SLO:
Kraški fenomen, vreden ogleda. Dostop možen z mnogih smeri, priporocam pa vzpon iz doline (štart pri izviru Hublja) mimo cacheja "Above the Valley", do okna. Pohod vam bo vzel cca. 1h. Lažja in predvsem položnejša alternativa je dostop iz vasi Otlica, cca. 20min.

Sledite markacijam (Otliško okno) in ne pozabite na primerno obutev. Da bi prišli do zaklada ni potrebno izzivanje na skalnih robovih! Pazite kod stopate!

Koordinate lahko malenkost odstopajo zaradi slabšega signala. Lokacija je pogosto vetrovna.

Nedalec stran je skrit tudi bonus cache - "Kamniti polž". Zgrabi ga :)

ENG:
Karst phenomenon worth a visit. Access is possible from many directions, I would recommend the ascent from the valley (start at the Hubelj spring) past the cache "Above the Valley", to the "Okno" (window). The hike will take approx. 1 h. More simple and gentler alternative access is from the village Otlica, approx. 20 min hike.

Follow the markings (Otliško okno) and do not forget appropriate footwear. To get the cache there is no need to walk on the rock edge! Watch your step!

Coordinates may differ slightly due to lower signal. Location is often windy.

Not far away a bonus cache is hidden, "Kamniti polž" (stone spiral). Go get it :)

More about OTLIŠKO OKNO:
The Otliško Okno is a unique karst phenomenon and a renowned Slovenian natural monument. “Okno” is a Slovene equivalent for window and bears this name because it has a form of a window, although it is actually a natural hole in a massive stone wall. Moreover, some claim it is a natural stone bridge over this giant hole. This majestic window provides a breathtaking and absolutely stunning view of the Vipava Valley and the nearby village of Otlica got the name after this magnificent work of nature. The Otliško Okno was formed from a sinkhole by corrosion and erosion just like all the Karst phenomena. Water started to corrode rocks in the sinkhole and spread the fissures in the rocks until the bottom of the sinkhole broke and fell down the slope. The result is the marvellous Otliško Okno, with another, much smaller window just beneath it. (source: TIC Ajdovscina)
