Description of the route: Moderately demanding tour with not very hard ascent to the Prosečné Mt. The difficult stretches in the lower and upper parts of the Prosiecka dolina valley are equipped with artificial aids. In rainy periods you may have to walk in a riverbed filled with water. The tour is one of the favourite hiking events in the Liptov region. Above all the crossing of the bizarre gorge-like Prosiecka dolina valley is an exciting experience. The Prosečné Mt. provides a wonderful view of the Liptov region and its mountainous rim. A visit to remarkable water mills saved by the conservationists is also interesting.
