The first via ferrata in Liptov region was opened in the Zahorovo area near the village of Liptovské Revúce. From its highest point, it is possible to see mountain peaks of the Low Tatras and Veľká Fatra.

Difficulty varies between easy, hard and extremely hard routes, so it is suitable for both beginners and experienced climbers, explained Katarína Šarafínová of the Regional Organisation of Tourism Liptov.
