KORADA - a hill located on west side of the Soča River, on the edge of Kanalski Kolovrat. From the top there is a beautiful view on most mountains above the Soča river, from its source to the outflow to the Adriatic Sea. From the top you can see almost everything from Triglav, Jalovec, Kanin, Krn and Matajur to the Sveta Gora and Sabotin. In good weather we can also see the Dolomites, the Carnic Alps, the already mentioned Julian Alps, the Kamniško Savinjske Alps, the Golake and Snežnik ... Only a few minutes walk from the top to the east we see the church of Sv. Gendrca.

LAŠČEK (1071 m) - is the highest peak of the Banjška plateau and lies in the Municipality of Nova Gorica. The starting point for Lašček is also from Kal nad Kanalom (from the village Cvetrež). After about 1 hour walk we reach the peak Lašček, where the view opens towards the Julian Alps, Dolomites, Mt. Sveta gora and towards the Adriatic Sea. In the distance, in clear weather, we can also see Triglav, who shyly shouts behind the Julian Alps. On Lašček there is a board with marked areas where our view can reach, as well as a book and a stamp.

Marijino Celje

MARIJINO CELJE - above the village of Lig the land rises and at 676 m above sea level reigns the Marijino Celje pilgrimage temple. In front of the church there is a marvellous outlook onto the Julian Alps in the north, in the heart of which presides Mount Krn, and on a clear day you can also see the highest Slovenian mountain Triglav in the background. Just in front of your very eyes, in the west, there is Matajur – a symbol that reminds us of the region of Venetian Slovenia (Beneška Slovenia). In the south, the view of Goriška Brda is blocked by Korada, Kanalski Kolovrat’s highest peak. If you look towards the Soča Valley in the direction of Nova Gorica, in the background, you can see the glittering Adriatic Sea. In case you want to see more, point your view at the church, then pass through the crest and the smooth road, the so-called “ridge road,” which leads from Lig to Goriška Brda. When looking from the road, you can admire the main Soča Valley and the Friulian Plains in all their beauty.
