Your journey starts in Kambreško where you can visit an interesting ethnological collection in Lukčeva Hiša and its kitchen with a typical stone fireplace, an ethnological monument of local significance. In the centre of the village you can see a water reservoir from World War I. You continue along the ridge of Kanalski Kolovrat following a picturesque, part tarmac and part dirt road to the villages of Humarji, Gorenje Nekovo and Lig. On the way to Humarji, you will go past a water trough from the times of World War I. The road then takes you to Lig with the pilgrimage church of Virgin Mary (Marijino Celje). The first church first stood on this spot in the beginning of the 13th century. In 1761 a copy of Mary’s statue was brought from the Austrian Mariazell, from where the church also got its name. Together with the pilgrimage centres on Sveta Gora above Solkan and Castelmonte/Stara gora above Cividale del Friuli/Čedad the church forms The Path of Three Sanctuaries. If you decide to go slightly off the trail at the village of Lig, you can visit Franc Jerončič’s Museum Collection in the village of Melinki, one kilometre away. Apart from the rich ethnologic and woodcarving collection you can also see a collection of items from World War I. From Lig continue on the tarmac road and then onto a forest road past the Church of St. Jacob above Debenje and the Church of St. Gendrca (St. Gertrude) under Korada. The latter was first mentioned in 1523. It was demolished during World War I and was later restored. The altar was brought from the demolished Church of St. Mark in Vipava. Only a few metres separate you from the top of Mt. Korada (812 m), from where the King of Italy, Victor Emmanuel III and his generals observed the action on the front. From here a beautiful view opens in front of you of the majestic Julian Alps, Soča Valley, Slavia Friulana, the Friuli Plain and the Adriatic Sea. From the Mountain Hut on Korada you return back past the Church of St. Gendrca (St. Gertrude) to the main road Lig–Vrhovlje, which you cross and descend down towards the village of Vrtače. From here the road to Plave follows the alpine path. In Vrtače the road takes you past a stone water trough from World War I. You continue on a forest path to the village of Zamedveje and all the way to Plave. From the Church of St. John the Baptist, which was demolished during World War I and then renovated in the 20th century.  You continue through the tunnel under the railway to a bridge over the Soča River, where the stage 6A of the Walk of Peace from the Alps to the Adriatic trail concludes.
