Plitvice Lakes: What Can I See in Two Hours?

Jump to last reply

If I only have 2 hours to spend at Plitvice Lakes (en route from Split to Ljubljana), is it worth stopping? I am most interested in whether I can reach the viewpoint from the upper circuit that shows an overview of the lower lakes (the iconic photograph that is on most websites). Or do I need more time to reach that viewpoint? I read through the various hiking circuits (which range from 2 to 8 hours) on the website for Plitvice Lakes National Park, but I cannot determine which route would lead me to that viewpoint. Because my time is limited, I don’t need to ride the electric boat or the panoramic train if they don’t save time or lead me to where I really want to go. I wish that I had a whole day to spend in the park, but I do not, so my question is whether it is worth stopping at all for such a short time. If all I will see in 2 hours are a few smaller waterfalls from ground level, I might just skip it, but if I can see that gorgeous “overhead” shot of several lakes and waterfalls, I will gladly make the effort. Thanks!
