Detailed route description:

Chata Generála Milana Rastislava Štefánika pod Ďumbierom (General M.R.Stefanik Chalet under Mt Dumbier) is one of the most popular chalets in the Low Tatras. It is situated just 1 hour walk from Mt Ďumbier, the highest peak of the mountain range. It was built in 1928 and is rightly considered a star of the development of tourism in the Low Tatras. The chalet provides accommodation and food services and it is also a strategic point for relaxation and recharging new energy while hiking around the national park. Not far from the chalet, there is a well-known Dead Bats Cave open to tourists.

Using the Jasná resort´s cable cars which take tourists to the crossroad beneath Mt Chopok, the route is undemanding. From the foot of Mt Chopok, a trip to „Štefánička“ takes less than 2 hours. Therefore it is also suitable for families with children. The chalet is accessible from a ridge hike through the Low Tatras, from Ďumbier peak or Chopok peak, and also from the region of Horehronie, the southern side of the Low Tatras.
