National nature reserve Tiesňavy

the canyon of the small River Varínka is a magical gateway to the Vrátna valley at the heart of the Malá Fatra. There are many interesting rock formations here, the most famous of which is the stone monk. In addition there are rocks that look like a crocodile, five cart drivers, Jánošík’s bowling pins, Jánošík’s bed, a camel and organs. In the Obšívanka Valley the “Outlaws’ Trail”, is an attractive trail with steep gradients in some places, including sections where you must hold on to a chain.
