An educational path, a unique wooden construction 1,234 metres long will lead visitors to the tree-tops – 24 metres above the ground – with an outlook point. Also, the longest dry toboggan in Slovakia, planned at 67 metres, is being built there, the Sme daily wrote, quoting the SITA newswire.

The wooden construction of the education path is sensitively situated in the natural environment, not to disrupt it, but to also offer hikers unique contact with nature.

This is the project of a private company, in collaboration with the State Nature Protection and administration of Pieniny National park. It should be finished by September and open the whole year round, with the exception of a few weeks.

The barrier-free path climbs to an outlook tower 32 metres tall, offering a breath-taking view of several natural parks.

From there, tourists can continue down on a dry toboggan.

The path leading through the tree-tops in the Bachledova Dolina (called Bachledka) Valley is the seventh project of the German architect Josef Stöger and the Erlebnis Akademie AG company, which has already made four paths in Germany and two in the Czech Republic.

It is part of a ski and summer leisure-time resort offering still more attractions: the longest bobsled track in the High Tatras (1.20 metres), playgrounds, an adventure game, entertainment/education path, a disc-golf green and bike-park with several different-level tracks.
