Every day spent in the region can be unique and full of experiences.
LOOKOUT TOWER ON KRAJČOV HILL
You will find the lookout tower after an easy, about half an hour's ascent from the main road in the village of Nižná Boca. The route is well marked. Nižná Boca is approximately 6km away from Chata pod sedlom Čertovica and can be easily reached by car or by walking along the paved road directly from the cottage through the village of Vyšná Boca. The walk takes about 1 hour 20 minutes. The lookout tower together with a mountain hut is on Krajčov hill above the village of Nižná Boca at an altitude of 1,000m. It serves as an observatory for quick identification of fires in the area. Thanks to its height of 14.5 metres and a unique location it offers a beautiful view of the entire village of Nižná Boca and the Bocianska valley. If you are lucky to have a nice weather, you see the famous Kriváň peak.
The cave is located 20km from Chata pod sedlom Čertovica in the village Bystrá, at a short distance from Brezno, just before Mýto pod Ďumbierom. It is the most important cave in the Horehronie valley. Cavers first entered it in 1926, but it was not opened to the public until 1968. The cave is 3,531m long, but the public can see only 545 metres. It is also suitable for immobile visitors, as there are only 20 easy-to-climb stairs. The entrance to the cave is located at an altitude of 565m only about 120m from the parking lot. It is characterized mainly by narrow and high corridors, however, you will also find beautiful halls with dripstone decoration, such as the Hall of Canopies or the Collapsed Dome. There is an abyss Hell, up to 56 metres deep, and you will be accompanied by several species of bats during the visit.
