The paper offers some critical remarks on the tectonic interpretation of the geomorphologicalevolution of the Triglav Lakes Valley (the southern part of Julian Alps, Slovenia) whichdenies not only the importance of the glacial erosion during the last Pleistocene glaciation,but also other morphogenetic agents during the Pleistocene and before (Šmuc, Rožič,2009). By our opinion, the glacial and non-glacial morphogenetic factors were completelyneglected in this paper.
