Description of the route: Moderately demanding route. The initial ascent from the Rožňavská kotlina basin to the upper edge of the plateau is the difficult stretch. The route passes through varied landscape. Several huge sinkholes and karren fields intrigue the attention of tourists. In the final part of the route there is the opportunity to visit the largest and the most beautiful cave of the Slovenský kras karst, the Domica cave. 
The route leads on marked hiking trails, mostly comfortable. Orientation may be difficult in the stretch between the Lukáčova bučina crossroads and Silica. The nature of the terrain is not suitable for placing marks so that it requires increased attention.
