Manínska Gorge

this national natural monument is the narrowest canyon in Slovakia. At its narrowest point it is barely wide enough for the bus to pass through. Many mountaineers train here. The bottom of the valley is often blocked by avalanches with the result that the villages higher up can be cut off from the world for several days. A guided footpath leads upstream to the Kostolec Gorge which has the largest rock overhang in Slovakia.
