Description of the route: Moderately demanding tour for its length. The long passage through one of the most beautiful valleys of the Veľká Fatra Mts. contains a steep descent in its first part followed by a long walk on asphalt road. Wonderful landscape.
The direct continuation of the Gaderská dolina valley is the Dedošova valley and both valleys are 18 kilometres long. The shape of the valley is that of a canyon with massive cliffs, rock towers and varied rock forms. Rich and varied flora and fauna with number of rare species enhance the impression of its wildness.
