Description of the route: Ascent to the most beautiful twin mountains of the Roháče Mts. resembling the devil's horns (roh = horn) ending by a visit to the wonderful Roháčske plesá lakes. Very demanding high-mountain tour with big elevation gain. Exposed stretches are provided by artificial technical aids. Not recommended in adverse weather conditions. Most of its parts are closed in winter time.
Tour over the mountains of Ostrý Roháč and Plačlivé is one of the top hiking feats in the Slovak mountains in general. It offers the most beautiful experience, in places drawing very close to a mountaineering performance. The ridge tour between the Volovec Mt. and the Smutné sedlo saddle is unique for its setting and a work of art by nature.
