These are the two most sought-after and most popular ascents in the Turiec area. You will start the ascent from the Gader Valley, where you can also visit Blatnica Castle along the way. A big attraction at the ascent to Tlstá is the Mažarná cave, which is located about halfway up the ascent. From the very top you have the opportunity to see the entire basin and the peaks of Malá Fatra. You will also get a view of Ostredok or Krížna. You can continue to the Ostrá, one of the most beautiful rock peaks in Slovakia. From the top there is a view of the whole Turiec, Malá Fatra and the main ridge of Veľká Fatra. The route is suitable for all-day hikes, as it will take you about 7 hours and 30 minutes.
