Kojca mountain

Kojca is 1303 meters high lookout peak, which is rising south from Baška grapa. It is most important mountain in this area. From the top opens a beautiful view on the chain of Spodnje Bohinjske gore (en. Lower Bohinj mountains), Škofja loka – Cerkno hills, Snežnik, Golaki and part of the mountains, which are rising above the middle part of river Soča. On the top are a heap of hay, NLS monument, enrollment book, and numerous benches. On the southern side of Kojca rises slightly higher Porezen.

Mountain Kojca shares the name with hamlet Kojca in Bukovo. Hamlet Kojca is the oldest settlement below Kojca and once was the seat of a local parish. Below southeast slope of Kojca, in Ravne pri Cerknem, is Ravne cave.

Kojca is known for its legend how a wicked old lady tricked the devil, on the Devil’s edge (si. Hudičev rob). The rock, which buried the deceived devil. Wicked old lady tricked the devil with church bells, as he wanted to seduce her soul, at the same time he found devastation.

Kojca is in general not a very known mountain, it was only mentioned by Andrej Stritar in his book With children to the mountains (si. Z otroki v gore). But this is completely unjustified because her view can be compared with the view of other more known peaks. Many beautifully marked trails lead to the mountain, most of them are not even on the map. The ascent to Kojca is possible in all seasons, it is the most beautiful at the end of May when irises bloom at the top.
