We get up to pack our things and follow our plan to Plitvice Lakes National Park to start our adventurous journey! Before that, we passed by a bakery shop and buy some bread for our breakfast. The journey took us about 2 hours plus. Finally, we reach there and we park near the entrance. The map of the National Park was big! Let me show you the amazing nature. You are recommended to use one day to explore this park.
Choices of route
The national park has 7 sites and I have visited some of it like Upper lakes, Lower lakes, Plitvica stream and Korona River. Due to weather issue, I can't visit Šupljara Cave as the walkway has been flooded! What a sad news !!
The 4 km long Plitvica Stream, one of several steady water flows in the National Park and the third largest source in the karst area of the Plitvice Lakes Park, gushes out from its source and never dries out.
After passing through Plitvica village, the stream reaches the Lower Lakes canyon and its waters plunge over 78-meter-high limestone cliffs, thus forming the Great Waterfall, the highest waterfall in Croatia.
About ten meters downstream of the Great Waterfall, the waters of Plitvica Stream break down into the dispersed waterfalls of Lake Novakovića Brod. This point represents the source of Korana River, located at 475 m above sea level.
How to go?
For me, previously I had mentioned in the previous post :SPLIT , my friend and I had rented 2 cars for this Croatia trip. So, I would suggest you the BEST is to rent a car as the distance from place to a place in Croatia is quite far.
If you only plan to go the National Park, here is the way:
From Zagreb Airport>> take the connecting bus to the main bus station>>Bus to National Park (about 2hours plus) Around RM40/trip
From Zadar Airport>> take the connecting bus to the main bus station>>Bus to National Park(about 2hours) Around RM50/trip
From Split >> take the connecting bus to the main bus station>>Bus to National Park (about 5hours plus) Around RM80/trip
