From Chumerna to Vratnik pass, the trail passes through the so-called Temnata Gora. In the past, this forest was so thick that the sunlight hardly went through its canopy.
The region is notorious due to the story about the tragic death of four children who got lost in the dark forest at the beginning of the last century. This story is still told and remembered.
Nowadays, Temnata Gora is not that thick, and in places it’s been ruthlessly cut down during the years of derelict attitude towards natural resources (from the 1990s up to date). Only few parts of the forest are preserved for the upcoming generations in their original state. Even if they are only few small sections, when you see them, you will be awestruck by the power of nature.
