Description

Not far from the village of Malachov, in the immediate vicinity of Banska Bystric, there is a beautiful Malachovská gorge, where glittering Malachovský waterfall glimpses. Malachovská gorge is only 200 meters long, but on each piece offers breathtaking natural beauty interspersed with meanders of the local stream.

A natural science trail of Ortutské Lake leads through the Malachovská gorge, starting on a recreational meadow "Below the Rock" and leads you directly to Malachovský waterfall. It is naturally the most beautiful and powerful in spring, when the snow melts. On the contrary, in winter, it freezes again and turns into a smaller, approximately 15 meter high icefall.

Right on the waterfall, there is sitting place provided with benches. The location is easily accessible either on foot or by bike. From the waterfall, you can continue further to the mine in Ortúty, then along the Ice Holes to the Ortutské Lake.
