We set out for our trip through valleys and dells of the Low Tatra Mountains, with a downhill ride from Štrbské Pleso. It is a 47 km long challenging route.
Our tour starts in Kráľova Lehota where we enter the Čierny Váh Valley. We ride through the village of Svarín and move up towards the Čierny Váh pumped storage hydro plant and its reservoir. Here we shift from the blacktop and follow the cycle path, which leads along the former Čierny Váh railway. In the past it was used for timber transportation. The route crosses the Čierny Váh river and takes us to a dell, Ništokova dolina. One kilometer ride and there is a forester's lodge with a lakelet, a pleasant place for a rest. Then we continue along the forest path to a pub near Važecká jaskyňa (Važec cave) from where we get a transfer to a nice place for lunch.
