Detailed route description

The Ostredok Lookout is located just a few minutes’ walk from the parking lot in the Biela púť location in the Jasná – Nízke Tatry ski resort. The starting point and the direction sign are also visible from the parking lot.

You turn off the main road at the cross and continue along the easy hiking route following the yellow sign. The tower was built only recently and offers tourists views of Chopok and the panorama of the Low Tatras, as well as the ski resort. There is a picnic table and benches under the lookout tower.

The hiking trail continues to the Symbolic Cemetery for the Victims of the Low Tatras and on to the Demänovská Cave of Freedom. In the chapel at the symbolic cemetery, there are tablets with the names of people who perished in the Low Tatras. There is also a statue of “Mountain Pieta”, which symbolizes a mother’s grief over the loss of a child. Inside the cemetery there is a Slovak coat of arms and a bell, which were cast by artists from Liptovský Mikuláš, as well as a monumental six-meter wooden cross, which was carved by a carver from the village of Kriváň.
