The end of holidays is just around the corner, so it’s the very last chance to visit some interesting places and to enjoy beautiful summer weather. I like spending my free time in an active way for a long while now, even though it doesn’t necessarily mean any extreme physical exertion, going for a walk is the same pleasant and allows us not only to stay fit, but also to get tired well. A wonderful place for long walks in the surrounding of majestic nature is the treetop walk Bachledka, which I had a chance to visit last week.
The treetop walk Bachledka is situated in Slovakia on the border of the Tatra and Pieniny National Parks. The whole construction is set among diverse forests, which certainly make a great impression on the people admiring all these breathtaking views. The treetop walk was open to tourists in 2017, and its route, which is more than 600 m long, leads through the earlier mentioned making a wonderful impression forest, which can be admired by the visitors from a totally unique perspective. One can reach that place in two ways, making use of a two-way gondola or going on foot. Personally, I recommend the second option, which will allow you not only to save some money, but also to get familiar with the surrounding forests even closer at your fingertips. However, one should remember that the route is quite steep at times, so everyone should be cautious there.
On the entire length of the footbridge, from time to time, one can stop at the educational stations, where not only kids, but also adults can get to know some interesting curiosities related to various animals, plants and issues connected with the local forest. Some other ways of educating the tourists include information boards, placed on several stops. Despite the fact that the treetop walk has been open for a couple of years, there are still carried out some works to increase the attractiveness of this place.
Reaching the top of a 32 meter high tower will guarantee you lots of amazing experiences, because some even very old trees will be just at your fingertips. The hosts didn’t forget about some extra attractions to brighten the tourists’ stay at their facility, such as fitness stops in the shape of secured, exposed pathways; observation deck at the top of the route, placed at 1175 m a.s.l.; adrenaline net with the total surface area of 88 m²; a 67 meter long slide built-in inside the viewing tower and the playground for kids at the base of the construction. Besides this, it’s worth knowing that the toboggan slide operates there all year long and not only in the winter season.
In the vicinity of the treetop walk tourists can find a satisfactory catering base, where one can rest after a tiring walk, as well as chilling experiences!
I truly recommend visiting Bachledka and its treetop walk, it’s also an ideal place for those of you who suffer from fear of heights, because everything is carefully secured, which increases the comfort of your walk. You can also find similar attractions in Poland and the Czech Republic. And how about you? Would you like to visit such places?
See you around!
