Koritnica (river)

The Koritnica (pronounced [kɔˈɾiːtnitsa]; Italian: Coritenza[1]), with a length slightly over 16 kilometers (9.9 mi), is a right tributary of the Soča River.[2] It flows west through the Log Koritnica Valley (Slovene: Loška Koritnica) south of Mount Mangart and then turns south near Log pod Mangartom, flowing past the Kluže Fortress and through the 70-meter (230 ft) deep and 200-meter (660 ft) long Kluže Canyon (korita Kluže), also known as the Koritnica Canyon (korita Koritnice).[3] It empties into the Soča southeast of Bovec.
