Description of the route: Moderately demanding ridge tour. Only the initial ascent to the Javorová crossroads is rather tough and then there is also the short ascent from the Príslop saddle to the main crest. Other stretches range between easy to comfortable thanks to little dissected profile and well-prepared footpaths and roads. There should be no problems with finding your way. Unfriendly and windy weather is to be expected in deforested areas around the Kubínska hoľa Mt. and the Minčol Mt. If the weather is too bad, fortunately there is the tourist cottage at the Kubínska hoľa Mt. offering shelter with possibility to stay overnight. The tour is a classic ridge tour. Due to its route running across the middle of the Orava region is offers plenty of superb views of the landscape and the tall mountain ridges skirting it.
