Detailed route description

The observation tower on Sousava Hill is a 16-meter-high view point, which allows the mountains of Rohace, Choc Mountains and Mala Fatra as well as Orava Magura and Babia Mountain to be seen over the trees.

Due to its demanding nature, the route is also manageable for smaller children. The lookout can be reached after about a half-hour walk with a 160 m climb. You can count on 45 minutes if you choose a longer route that bypasses the hill from the right side. The way back leads downhill, making it a few minutes faster. Often, the beginning of a shorter route leads to the often muddy forge due to logging. If it was raining before the trip, use a longer route around the hill for a trip.
