The walkways have no handrails, there are few places you can sit down to rest during hours of walking. Large crowds jostle past you on the narrow walkways, that are sometimes wet and slippery.

Plitvice lakes national park has several blue-green lakes linked by waterfalls. Visited in late November after a snowfall, made walkways icy and slippery. Good news was there were not many people in the park, so we were able to see a great deal.

Hi, Yes you could go back the same evening but you wont be covering the entire park. Besides its not possible to do that in one day.
