Kráľova hoľa (King's Hill) - a hill emblazoned with legends, rumors or a fountain of Slovak songs and poems. One could also say that Kráľova hoľa is one of the Slovak national hills. With its height of 1946 meters, it dominates the eastern part of the Low Tatras and deserves to be one of the most visited peaks in this locality.

Kráľova hoľa is full of unique beauty and variety of nature, but it also hides a wealth in the form of caves under the Earth's surface. According to legend, the name of the Kráľova Hoľa was obtained from the Hungarian king Matthias Corvinus, who hunted in the local forests and dined at the very top of the hill.

Not only Corvinus was enchanted by the hill, but many others too. And it is no wonder about it. Its top provides an extensive circular view of a large part of Slovakia, which will captivate you. Kráľova hoľa is also the place where the largest Slovak rivers - Váh (Black Váh), Hron, Hornád and Hnilec spring.

Several marked hiking trails from the surrounding villages lead to the top. The easiest route leads from the village of Šumiac along the green marked hiking trail approx. 6km (2.5 hours) or also along the old asphalt road, which cyclists will certainly appreciate .

And for those more persistent and able-bodied, Kráľova hoľa represents an excellent starting point for conquering the impressive ridge tours of the Low Tatras.
