The purpose of this study was to define a morphogenetic interpretation of the formation and functioning of the blind valleys of Hudournik and Golobert in the contact karst area in the surroundings of Dane pri Divači. In order to achieve this purpose we have set five goals: review of scientific papers on contact karst and the studied area, geomorphological analysis of surface forms and preparation of the geomorphological map, analysis of underground forms, morphometric and morphostructural analysis of the area, and the synthesis of findings. Hudournik's steepness of waterflow in the upper part of the valley is higher than Golobert's. Morphostructural analysis has shown that the tectonic structure had a significant influence on the course of Golobert's canyon and on the course of the cave channels in Mejame which run along the fractures in the fracture zone. The blind valleys of Hudournik and Golobert started to form when the river Reka (River) cut itself into its riverbed and deepened into the Vreme valley. The two creeks have formed their blind valleys during the period of higher water levels and before the anthropogenic change of the waterflow. In the process of the formation of the contact karst forms in general, the rock base (contact of limestone and flysch), the presence of allogenic waterflows, the non-carbonate water collecting hinterland higher than the surroundings and the course of fractures are important. In the studied area, most of the forms had formed in foraminiferal limestone. Given the number of typical forms of contact karst, the studied area is a typical example of contact karst.
