Hike to the Cingarela waterfall, Istra

This is a stunning hidden gem between the border of Slovenia and Croatia just before Kaštel. The path might be a bit hard to find if you do not know exactly where it is.

How to get there

Pass the border between Slovenia and Croatia at Dragonja, then turn left to Buje. After a few kilometres turn left for the village of Gadari and park near a little pond. After that, walk past the last houses until you find a forest path. From there on pay attention to the markings. The hike takes about one hour each way.

The best time to visit the waterfall is between December and April since, in the summer months, there might not be enough water and the path might be too overgrown.

Istria has some many beautiful places just waiting to be discovered!

Keep exploring,

  1. I spent some time in Istria in the summer and would’ve loved longer to explore more of the countryside. This place looks amazing! If I ever go to Slovenia I will for sure check it out!
