The Pokljuka plateau is 20 km long and almost as wide. It is covered with pine tree forests and pastures and spans on the altitude which ranges from 1100 to 1400 m above the sea level. One of its appealing points is certainly the cattle, still grazing on its pastures during the summer season. The shepherds of these pastures will provide you with sour milk, curd and cheese. The shingle-covered wooden cottages represent the characteristic feature of the Pokljuka mountain pastures and were once used by the shepherds as their homes and the place to make sour milk and other dairy products.
The Pokljuka plateau offers numerous sports opportunities. The plateau represents a perfect starting point for mountaineering, whilst the cyclists enjoy its beautiful nature, low motor vehicle transport volume and somewhat more demanding nearby ascents. During the winter season it turns into a very popular cross-country skiing destination which also hosts international biathlon competitions.
