Description of the route: A complete tour across the High Tatras through two valleys and one saddle. Demanding all-day high-mountain tour, which is difficult for its length and extreme altitude difference. The most strenuous stretch is that between the rock threshold of the Litvorová dolina valley and the terrain step below the Zbojnícka chata cottage. Fixed ropes secure exposed stretches below the Prielom saddle. Dangerous snowfields can occur on the route even in summer months. Greater part of the route is closed in winter. 
The first stretch ending below the Prielom sedlo leads in one of the longest, as well as the quietest valleys. The landscape beyond the saddle offers an impressive experience in a valley dotted with lakes.
