Most beautiful canyon in National Park Slovenský kras
The karst canyon is almost 4 km long, at some points is only 10 meters wide and her walls are over 300 meter high. There is a spectacular view from the top.
The creek that passes through the canyon, Chotárny potok (also called Blatnický potok), forms beautiful cascades and small waterfalls, especially after heavy rain. Approximately in the middle of the valley stands Sugar Loaf, a 105-meter high rock formation that is the highest of its kind in Slovakia. The best way to enjoy the canyon is to follow the track up to the very top.
TIP: Once you are on the top of the canyon, you can continue on the blue trail to the village Turňa nad Bodvou, passing the Turniansky Castle. From Turňa, you can return to Zádiel by train.
FOR ROCK-CLIMBERS: The rocks are very popular climbing places. Due to conservation reasons, climbing is allowed only from August to March.
