Description

If you starve for seeing the beauty of the Demänovská Valley not only from the ground, but also from the highs, head out to the lookout tower on Ostredok Hill.

The lookout tower is set in the bosom of beautiful Low Tatras nature. It is a place worth visiting in every season. It is the two-storey observation tower soaring to a height of 7 m. Thanks to its convenient location, you will be wowed by a spectacular outlook panorama.

From the top viewing platform, firstly you will see the famous hills such as Chopok, Ďumbier and Dereše. You will also find a magnificent view of the entire Demänovská Valley or Poľana Volcano. The attentive eye will certainly not miss the fact that panoramic photos with descriptions of what can be seen from the outlook are mounted on the tower ceiling.

You can notice the lookout tower already from the parking lot in Jasná - part Biela Púť. From the parking lot, you must follow the yellow tourist trail leading through the entire Ostredok ridge. You can reach the lookout tower in about 20 minutes by a pleasant walking pace.

If you would like to take a longer walk through the Tatra nature, you can continue along the yellow tourist trail, which will take you Monument of the Slovak National Uprising, the symbolic cemetery of the victims of the Low Tatras, or to other attractive tourist sites.
