Tourism in the GreaterFatra is different than in the Tatra Mountains. There, you do not have to overcome endless meters, climb rocky sections and meet crowds of tourists. In the Greater Fatra, you can expect extensive meadows full of meadow flowers, medicinal herbs or sheep grazing on pastures.

This almost fairy-tale look will be provided to you especially if you go on an oval hill called Ploská. The ascent is unpretentious, so the trip to Ploská can be easily managed by children. The path leads along the ridge and you usually barge into a sheep far, so there is a lot of prepared for children.

The easiest access is from the village Liptovské Revúce - Vyšná Revúca after the yellow marked trail and the whole trip there and back has a length of approximately 11 km. Although climbing the ridge is not difficult, it is located at an altitude of 1,532 m above sea level. From Ploská, there is a great view of the other hills of Čierny Kameň and Rakytov.

Ploská Hill has its charm in every season. At the end of summer you will find a lot of blueberries or parasol mushrooms there. But in the autumn, this place is painted with rich yellow and red colours, the ground is dotted with mushrooms, the valley is shrouded in magical fog and somewhere in the distance, you can hear the murmur of the creek.

„O nenáročnej túre by som pri Ploskej asi nehovorila. Pre deti je to jednoduchá tura len vtedy, keď sa nesú v nosiči🙂 je to dosť veľa stúpania ..takže treba sa na to pripraviť, že to nie je len prechádzka po holiach.“
