According to the stories from our forefathers, once upon a time at Matkov kot, there was a glacial lake. As the legend goes, it was Lintver the dragon that smashed the lake bank with its mighty tail, letting loose the waters approximately 1,200 years ago, when the ravaging flood submerged the valley. Upon arriving at the Lamotje ravine, visitors are first greeted with a view of the Jezera stream flowing across a small dam towards the Logar Valley.
Straight ahead in the mighty rock wall lies the lair of Lintver the dragon. In times long ago, the cave was the home of the village eccentric and poacher known as Šikanc and his children, hence the name Šikančeva zijavka (Šikanc cave). Millennia before Šikanc, however, the cave was inhabited by Lintver the dragon, which is still remembered on this very day albeit in a different form.
Visitors should not be surprised at the view of a wooden boat, similar to those once tied to the Ribčeva peč rock used by fishermen living near where the lake used to be.
Difficulty: a themed trail
Warning: visitors enter the Šikanc cave at their own discretion (risk of Lintver the dragon and the occasional falling rock).
