After this you get involved, whether you like it or not, in a climbing festival.
You make your way upstream and up to the mountian using wooden ladders, iron ladders and iron steps and chains.
All of this climbing is sometimes interrupted by beautiful sights of cliffs rising over 100 metres high. You get the distinctive feeling of being trapped inside the mountain when you reach a splendid scene.
Suddenly you approach a narrow passage where the stream flows beneath your feet and the two rock cliffs come together beneath your feet. There's only a foot of space to move between so claustophobic people will probably begin to feel very uncomfortable. The next view however is magnificent. On a clear day the dark and gloomy shadows of the rocky passage make place for an oasis of light. You're approaching a waterfall next to the inevitable ladder which you'll have to climb sooner or later.
Better take later because you'll have to do one thing: sit on the rocks that the small waterfall clashes into. This is really fantastic; it's like taking a bath and a shower at the same time! (Don't worry : there's no chance in drowning because all the water immediately flows through the rocky dark gap.)
After this splendid sight there still are some nice things to see like some sort of 'bathtub' which will tempt you to sit in it. This can be done but after this the last bit of the trip uphill begins and it involves a little bit of climbing until you reach the road (RED) which will lead you to the Camping of Podlesok.
