The second highest peak of Kysucká vrchovina - Ľadonhora, is ideal for hiking in every season. Not so tall, but steep, conical top is densely covered with beech forests. Its slopes extend over the village of Horný Vadičov, not far from the town of Kysucké Nové Mesto.

Although Ľadonhora is not a traditional mass tourist area, it will surely surprise you with its beauty and landscape. In addition, these steep slopes will test your fitness. On a relatively short section, you will have to overcome more than 400 meters of altitude.

The apex of Ľadonhora does not provide a view due to the dense beech stand. However, don't ne sad, just below the summit, there are pastures, from which there is a beautiful view of the valley, the village, but also the surrounding hills. Another nice view is from the western ridge.

The hike is relatively short and takes about 3-4 hours. If you are accustomed to steep ascents, you will not have any trouble getting to Ľadonhora. The starting point for the ascent is the village of Horný Vadičov - part Kubaščikovci (approx. 2 km away).
