We have been at 07.15 in the parking lot, today we have decided to divide the group, Curro, Gaspar, Antonio and I do not go to the Low Tatra specifically to the National Park of the Slovak Paradise "Slovensky Raj" to realize the "ravine-path- ferretero "by Sucha Bela. The rest of the group continues with the ski mountaineering program.
We arrived at Podelsok with the idea of ​​doing a circular route, we paid 1.50 euros for parking (WP No. 1), in the entrance booth to the park. We carry the track on the GPS but the path to the beginning of the ravine is well signposted. We found a first crossroads with informative signs and indicative (WP No. 2), we continue straight on the track about seventy meters towards SSW to get to the junction with the trail (WP No. 3) of Sucha Bela, we walk through meadow and arrived at a booth (WP 4) with information about the park and the trail-ravine. Just a few meters from the house begins the trail (WP No. 5), are 9 and 3 '.
From here the adventure begins. It would be very difficult to mark all the steps equipped, in one way or another, that we go during the journey through the interior of the ravine: wooden stairs, metal ladders, bridges, catwalk chains, narrow passages etc so I'm just going to note any mark on trees and crosses with ravines or waterfalls that converge in the Sucha Bela, but only for information and time orientation since once inside the ravine no other route that can lead to confusion.
Approximately 240 meters from the entrance we will find a white and green paint mark on a good sized tree (WP Nº 6). In this time the ravine goes down with water and we will have to look for the right step so we do not have to take off our shoes, nor do we feel like wetting our feet.
As I said before we are going to find different equipment and although some do not look very good they fulfill their role which is not other than not getting wet. The photographs that you will see in the wiki, even if they are not ordered, can give you an idea. There is no obstacle that supposes a great difficulty but if it is necessary not to have vertigo and especially not to hurry to pass them, especially the metallic scales since they are usually wet and are not equipped with life line.
At 10 am and 15 'we reached the waterfall-ravine, dry, of Misové Vodopády (WP Nº 7) marked with a small sign with its name. At 10 am and 44 'we reached the gully waterfall of Okiendovy Vodopad (WP No. 8) and at 10 am and 53' we reached the ravine waterfall of Bocny Vodopad.
We reached the exit of what is properly the ravine at 11h and 21' (WP No. 11). We are going to continue the channel of the Sucha Bela stream through a very clear forest (WP Nº12). We are gaining height at the same time that the ravine is taking direction S, the road is quite comfortable.
We reach a protected source with its wooden shed (WP No. 13) we go to the S to go to a dirt track (WP No. 14) in it we turn to the left in direction E as soon as we have walked about 120 meters for it when we arrived at a picnic area, there are tables with a deck and a wooden bench to the right of the track. It is 11 o'clock and 55' we make a stop to regain strength and continue along the track that is next to the covered booth and that takes us in direction NNE (WP No. 15) among beautiful specimens of conifers. There are paint marks on the trees.
We reach a crossroads (WP Nº16) and take on our left in the NNE direction, a few meters further on we find a white and yellow paint brand and the letter C (WP Nº 17). We follow the comfortable track and reach a crossroads Pod Vtacim Hrbom with several signs, it is 12 and 33 ', we continue in direction N, to start down to the valley. We reached a new crossroads (WP Nº 19) in the left to NNE. Although there is some trace of the path we do not abandon the track that we carry. We found a new fountain with its wooden cassette (WP No. 20). We continue along the track and we find trail marks (WP No. 21) on our right which is nothing more than a shortcut to avoid making the whole curve of the track, we take this detour and descend again to the track. We arrived at a crossroads, Nad Podleskom, with informative signs on a tree (WP No. 22) about 40 meters from it we left the track (WP No. 23) to take by trail and cut. We go back to the track (WP Nº 24) we cross it to the other side and continue along the path until we cross again with it (WP Nº 25), we cross it and continue along the path until we reach the lower part of the park here we turn to Our left in the NNW direction, we cross the bridge over the Sucha Bela and we access the entrance area to the park, it is the 13th and 30th when we stop for a beer in a cozy bar, with covered terrace, to celebrate how well we have spent the morning. At 2:00 pm and 15:00 we are already in the vehicle to go back to the Tatry Holiday.
I said an activity to enjoy and recommended for almost everyone ... that if it is not suitable for people with vertigo or problems in very closed spaces.
In this time the ravine lowers with water but in July and August the Sucha Bela is full of personnel, which is worse, and it will be necessary to queue at the most complicated points and it will even cost you time to access the park. My recommendation is not to go in those months ... unless you have a lot of patience
Greetings and enjoy.

    Hola,
    Veo que está catalogada como Via Ferrata pero no me parece que se use el kit. ¿Es necesario?
