Many peaks of the Malá Fatra mountain range in northern Slovakia are worth visiting. One of them is also Malý (Small) Rozsutec, accessible from the popular tourist spot of Terchová in the Žilina Region, possible to discover with our Žilina travel guide.

Several routes lead to the peak of Malý Rozsutec, so it is possible to use different routes on the way up and down and return to the same place.

One option is to connect the hike with Jánošíkove Diery (Jánošík’s Holes), a popular system of gorges and waterfall suitable also for a hike with children.

The start is at the car park in Terchová-Biely Potok where the touristic route Jánošíkové Diery begins. After conquering Dolné (Lower) or Nové (New) Diery, which are two different ways that meet in one point, tourists follow with Horné (Upper) Diery.
