Milanovac, Gavanovac, Kaluđerovac and Novakovic Brod make the system of the Lower Lakes, which are formed in the canyon, built of good permeable limestone of the older Cretaceous Age. Most rocks in the canyon reach the height of about 40 m.


Lake Milanovac is located at an altitude of 523 meters and its maximum depth has 19 m. It was named after a shepherd Mile Perisic, who had a mill here. A terrible spate plunged him into the lake, where he drowned.

The water color is  from bluish to greenish. It is bordered by more than twenty meters high rock, and a walkway for the sightseeing. The eastern part of the lake waterfalls Milanovac is called Waterfalls of Milka Trnina as a  sign of thankfulness to this talented Croatian opera singer of international reputation.

Gavanovac lake is located  downstream of Waterfall of Milka Trnina, and is one of the smaller Lower Lakes. It got its name from the legend about Gavanovo treasure, which disappeared in the lake . This lake is also  bordered by many steep cliffs. There is a never proven assumption that the water from the bottom of the lake flows off in an unknown direction. Water from Gavanovac spills over travertine cascades called Big Cascades,  falling down in the lower lake Kaluđerovac.


From these cascades branches off the path to opening of the cave Supljara. With stone and brick staircase through the cave you can go out on the plateau and upper path which runs along the edge of the canyon.
Supljara is an underground cave that habitats with special environmental factors. The temperature of the cave area has constant, around 10.5 ° C, and the air is completely saturated with moisture. Due to these adverse conditions, Šupljara inhabits specially adapted cave fauna. Although small, Supljara not only has a rich cave fauna, but some species where here first discovered and scientifically described!


From the cascade is also visible the opening of the Blue Cave, which was once entered by boat. The main tourist walkway is continuing along the cascades and goes to the west side of the canyon, leading us to the end of the lake.With travertine cascade between Kaluđerovac and Novakovic brod nowadays is a tourist walkway that goes down to the Great Waterfall  and continues in the direction of Kozjak.


Lake Kaluđerovac is located downstream of the Great Cascade, and is one of the largest Lower Lakes. It got its name from the word monk - according to legend, a hermit monk lived in a cave above the lake.
Right above the lake rises more than 40 meters high rock, and there are lovely view points. The lake has a lot of fish. Water from Kaluđerovac spills over 2 meters high travertine barriers over which leads a walkway to a smaller and lower lake Novakovic Brod.


At the end of Lake Novakovic Brod are 25 meters high cascades through which the water of the lake crashes in the enlarged depression called Sastavci. Here the water combines with Plitvice streams which overflows over 78 m high waterfall called Great Waterfall and in the foothills of Sastavci creates the source of the river Korana.

To start with, the booking process with happy to visit for this tour was extremely easy....they picked us right from the doorstep of our hotel in Pula region. Our guide(whose name I dont remember precisely) was an excellent chap...throughout the bus journey, which was for about four hours, he kept us informed with the history of the entire region, which was informative and entertaining. The journey of 4 hours was quite comfortable as there were apt coffee breaks in between. The Plitvice Lake is surely not to be missed...What a beauty...Absolutely mesmerising...Highly recommended to visit with this group.

This was such a beautiful place to see. Make sure you bring your walking shoes. It was 15 hour trip for us but it was so worth it. Our tour guide was such help from start to finish there was nothing he didnt explain. We were further out from the pick up points but our guide still got us a lift home and if you are not on the pick up points list all u have to do is ring and they will organize one. There is no extra costs on this trip And lunch included although I have to say the vegetarian option looked nicer. The lakes and waterfalls are exactly what you see in the picture. The waters are So clear so many fish and ducks. Just so amazing and peaceful

What a beautiful national park, we really needed a whole day there to really enjoy the beautiful surroundings -but i know that it was not possible as we had to drive such a distance to get there. Our guide Maria gave us very good information and was very helpful. The bus was comfortable and the driver was patient. Thank you
