Naming watercourses. In the description, the watercourse is mentioned as the original Savinja stream. The stream soon disappears in a mostly dry riverbed and is called Kotovec. A few kilometers down the valley, the Črna stream joins, which originates below Orlovec (767 m n.v.). The river actually gets the name Savinja only after the confluence of the streams Črna and Jezera, which flows from Matkov kot.

From Solčava to Logarska dolina. Access is possible by vehicle, followed by a 15-minute walk to the waterfall. The first source of the Savinja is above the Rinka waterfall, at an altitude of 1,380 m. The rest of the surface water is obtained from the Okrešelj area. A watercourse called Kotovec flows upstream, most of the year under gravel, to the lower end of the Logar Valley. The second source of the Savinja or also the source of the Črna is at an altitude of 767 m. The Črna flows along the lower part of the Logarska valley for another 1,600 m and forms the Savinja River with the tributary Jezera.
