Description

Veľký Sokol is the longest, most exposed and at the same time one of the wildest gorges in the Slovak Paradise. The gorge is approximately 6 kilometers long and its height is almost 300 meters. The final and at the same time the most beautiful part of the gorge is Roth's gorge. It is named after the tourist who was the first to cross the entire Veľký Sokol. Passing through this gorge is a real tourist experience. Massive limestone cliffs, sometimes up to 300 meters high, will surround you. One-way passage is ensured by a system of wooden or metal ladders, bridges and risers. The nearest starting point is Pila, because parking is prohibited at the Sokol intersection. We recommend that you leave your car at Pila and come to the beginning of Veľké Sokol on foot.
