The Kočevska mountain path connects the sights of the southwestern part of the municipalities of Kočevje, Kostel, and Osilnica. It runs from Koča pri Jelenovem studencu to the Kolpa pri Gorenji Žagi, along the slopes of the Kolpa Canyon to the Krempa saddle, and returns to the cottage through Borovec and Kočevska Reka, past the Ledena jama (Ice Cave). The first part of the path leads us mainly through natural and well-preserved beech forest. There are only a few villages and hamlets in between, which indicates the sparsely populated area and the great forest area of the Kočevsko region. The entire Kolpa border is a unique habitat for rare and endangered plant and animal species.
