JEZERA IN SLAPOVI POHORJA

Črno jezero

Intenzivno doživetje neokrnjene narave v zavarovanem gozdnem rezervatu.

Šotna barja z jezerci sodijo med najmikavnejše naravne znamenitosti Pohorja!

Lovrenška jezera

Lovrenška jezera so največje visoko barje v Sloveniji.

Barje, katerega del so tudi Lovrenška jezera, se nahaja med Roglo in Ribniškim Pohorjem in je sestavljeno iz dveh delov, med seboj ločenih s pasom gozda. Nastalo je pred približno 8000 leti kot mineralno močvirje po koncu zadnje ledene dobe. Njegova posebnost je ta, da nima nobenega pritoka in nastaja izključno iz padavinske vode. Tako se velikost in oblika 20 jezerc, ki sestavljajo to naravno znamenitost, spreminja glede na količino padavin, vendar so tudi poleti napolnjena z vodo, saj ima barje veliko zmožnost zadrževanja vode.

Ribniško jezero

Jezero s še šestimi barjanskimi okenci.

Šotna barja z jezerci sodijo med najmikavnejše naravne znamenitosti Pohorja! Poleg Ribniškega jezera je šest manjših jezerc oz. barjanskih oken. Vsa imajo okoli meter globine in dno vseh se nadaljuje v šoto. Ker je barje na pobočju z nagibom, ga imenujemo tudi viseče barje.

To visoko šotno barje se je razvilo pred 8.000 leti na pobočju vzhodno od Ribniškega vrha, med ruševjem in v zamočvirjeni kotanji, obdano s smrekovimi gozdovi. Jezero leži na višini 1.490 m NV,  pod Jezerskim vrhom, zanj pa je značilno, da se napaja samo z deževnico.

Pragozd s slapoma Veliki in Mali Šumik

V nedotaknjenem pragozdu.  

Naj vas očarajo najimenitnejše naravne znamenitosti na območju Naravnega parka Pohorje, do koder vas pripeljejo številne pohodne poti.

Slap Sklaca / Framski slap

Slap, visok 16 m in potok, ki teče vse do nižine in se nahaja v neposredni bližini odcepa regionalne ceste Hoče-Areh-Bellevue/Bolfenk.

Potok teče v naravnem okolju vse do nižine – do naselja Fram. Nekdaj so potok izkoriščali v gospodarske namene.  Močno razvito je bilo mlinarstvo, žagarstvo in oljarstvo, ki je dajalo značilnost kraju.

ENERGY TRAIL

Renowned therapist Tomislav Brumec already in 2009 carried out research and measurements that showed that the Pohorje forest has healing powers and a surprising amount of water energy potential.

Based on this research, an energy path was formed at that time, which is an integral part of the Pohorje village wellness & spa resort, as the positive energy is still felt throughout the entire settlement.

At the top of Pohorje, there is a force that heals and is accessible to all, and signposts guide you through each point.

Experience the cleansing of 7 body energy centers (chakras) at your own pace, but the recommended time to go around all the points is 70 minutes, and the healing effect begins after three walks. So perfect to include a daily walk in the obligatory daily ritual and take time just for yourself.
