This footpath is a unique path in the area of the Kolpa Regional Park. It winds along the Kolpa River past the Trpotec spring, which is known as the source of eternal youth, to the village of Breg where you can find the last working mill on the river Kolpa. And Kobiljača, the longest karst cave in Bela krajina, is situated nearby. The path continues to the so called French stone and the village of Kot pri Damlju which is the southernmost point of Slovenia. The hike ends in the picturesque village of Damelj. The traditional hike along the southernmost Slovenian footpath usually takes place in May, offering hikers to experience warm hospitality of local people and their culinary specialities.
