Slovak Paradise is famous for its gorges and now we will visit the Piecky Gorge. It is known for the Great Waterfall on which it is necessary to overcome a 13 meter high ladder and then the Terrace Waterfall with an 8 meter ladder awaits. Piecky is not one of the longest gorges. Its length can be estimated at 4km. From the starting point of the routes, which can be considered a camp in Podlesok is a bit out of hand. Many people discourage his high ladders.

Gorge with the highest ladders

Slovak Paradise is famous for its gorges and now we will visit the Piecky Gorge. It is known for the Great Waterfall on which it is necessary to overcome a 13 meter high ladder and then the Terrace Waterfall with an 8 meter ladder awaits. Piecky is not one of the longest gorges. Its length can be estimated at 4km. From the starting point of the routes, which can be considered a camp in Podlesok is a bit out of hand. Many people discourage his high ladders. What is good to watch out for is that they wanted money for insurance at the entrance. If you have your insurance, don't let it be imposed. This gorge is also charged. Those who want to avoid it need to leave early in the morning, but beware, there are bears here too. The first kilometer is not demanding at all and what is good about this gorge is that it starts with the Great Waterfall with its 13 meter ladder, so it is still possible to consider your path and especially to be careful and climb one by one. Unfortunately, many people here are irresponsible and the ladders are overloaded and moreover, if he falls he will take with him all those who are on the ladder. How it is suitable for children is the responsibility of parents. For myself, I think the children still have time for this.

I like buildings like this in this environment.

With its 13 meter high ladder. It is the entrance gate of the gorge. And there are often crowds of queues for photography and preparations.

We move on

Upstairs one does not breathe and it is necessary to go further away so as not to slow down the others. We can say about the gorge that it is quite wet.

Another test. This time an 8 meter high ladder, which is located behind the middle of the gorge. As soon as this is passed, it has already been won.
