“Jelení Vodopád” Waterfall

Čutkovská Valley situated in the protected area of the National Park of Veľká Fatra, near the Černová district, is not so well-known among tourists. Yet it is a place that is definitely worth visiting.

One of the biggest attractions of the valley is the Jelení Vodopád Waterfall, which thanks to its height of 24 meters, represents the second highest formation of its kind in the national park.

The waterfall is located on the Jelení Potok River – a tributary of Čutkovský Potok River. It consists of double cascading floors and the most beautiful is its upper part. From a scientific perspective it is a so-called “destructive waterfall” which means that its height and inclination will recede over time due to the water impact.

Jelení Vodopád Waterfall represents one of the stops along the educational trail named “Známa neznáma” (“Known Unknown”), which starts at the mouth of the Čutkovská Valley and makes all the most attractive corners of the area accessible. There are 84 steps built in the front area of the waterfall because of the more difficult terrain. Since the amount of water in the waterfall fluctuates during the year, it is best to visit it in the spring or in the seasons after major rains.
