In this route, we don’t even leave Liptovský Ján and we find ourselves in Jánská Valley, which we climb 11 kilometers until we find ourselves on Svidovské Saddle. Along the way, we pass a crossroads with the Stanišovská Valley, where there is also a cave of the same name open to the public. Further in the valley we can find a waterfall and beautiful formations of the limestone mountains of the Low Tatras.

In the last part of the ascent we pass Cottage “Pred Bystrou” where the last point of civilization ends, from here we are already in the wilderness. On the top of Svidovské Saddle, we will stop for a moment and enjoy the views of the surrounding mountains. After a break we can continue with downhill to the Svidovská Valley.
