Geocache Description:


Flag SK

Pozyvam vas na prechadzku nadhernymi lesmi Chocskych vrchov. Pocas svojej navstevy uvidite prastare stromy, rozkvitnute cistinky, vysoke brala, zacujete zurcanie horskych bystrin, tajomne zvuky lesa, a pozorne sledovat vas budu oci kruziacich dravcov. Majte preto oci otvorene, a plnymi duskami nasavajte krasy nasej prirody!

Prosba: na jar prebieha hniezdenie chranenych dravcov, a obzvlast v tomto obdobi potrebuju pre odchov mladych klud. Pokial byvate za rohom, zvazte svoju navstevu, a ak vas zatvorena skatulka na mape velmi nedrazdi, vydrzte do druhej polovice juna, pripadne do jesene, ked je tu snad najkrajsie. Ak to nie je mozne, snazte sa prosim pohybovat v lese tichucko ako srnka. Takto sa vam bude aj lahsie nacuvat spevu vtactva. Ak sa bojite, ze bez rachotu vyrusite medveda - pamatajte - kto sa boji, nech nechodi do lesa. :) A nezabudnite - pohybujete sa v chranenej oblasti. Dakujem za pochopenie!

Ku pokladu

Za dazda alebo v zime zbytocne neriskuj, a navstevu radsej odloz - exponovane useky su v pripade posmyknutia velmi nebezpecne aj za sucha! Pevna turisticka a obuv a palicky urcite padnu vhod. Zaparkuj auto v razovitej obci, kde chytili Juraja Janosika - a to podla svetlej vysky vozidla bud priamo na namesticku, alebo dalej v nadm. vyske cca 735m na polnej ceste. Potom, ako sa nebadane vytratis z turistickeho chodnika, na uvedenych suradniciach najdes polovnicky posed (nadm. vyska 830m) ktory Ti da odpoved na otazku - ako dalej? Poklad je v tejto chvili uz nadosah - necelych 300 metrov od Teba! Suradnice ziskas lahko:

N49°08.(10 x C x B + 9) E019°18.(25 x A + 3)

A = kolko steblikov ma rebrik? hladas neparne cislo, a stebliky na strome Ta nezaujimaju
B = kolko stromov tvori podpery posedu?
C = na ktoru svetovu stranu vedu dvere? sever = 49 / vychod = 16 / juh = 55 / zapad = 8
* pamataj - nasobenie ma vyssiu prioritu nez odcitanie

Ak si mal oci otvorene, v tejto chvili si uz mozno zistil, ze dracie zuby sa na Teba cely cas skodoradostne skeria! Bodaj by sa neskerili - z toho miesta je totiz krasny vyhlad na okolite hory, dedinky a pod. Poklad je umiesteny pri koreňoch vývratu. Aj ked je poklad vzdialeny cca 300 metrov, zavisi na tom, aku trasu si zvolis. Cesta Ti moze trvat 40 minut, ale aj 1,5h. V panenskom lese (v okoli 1km, nie je ziaden turisticky znackovany chodnik) zarucene nestretnes ziadnych ludi, za to, ak budes mat stastie uvidis srnku, alebo lisku. Nespravne zvolena cesta preveri tvoje horolezecke schopnosti a necha ta predierat hustinou lesa v 60° kopci a narocnost terenu sa Ti zmeni na 4 alebo viac.

Cestou ku pokladu (alebo od neho) sa mozes zastavit na tych najlepsich vyhliadkach, ktorych suradnice najdes v prilozenych waypointoch.

Pozn. na zaver:
Miesto je zvolene tak, ze zazijes tie najkrajsie vyhlady na krasnu prirodu a o samotny poklad pri tom vsetkom ani tak nejde. Na jednej strane uvidis v dialke aj Ruzomberok, na druhej (mozno zasnezene) hrebene Malej Fatry od Martinskych Holi az po Velky Rozsutec. Cestou uvidis krasne skaly roznych, aj bizarnych tvarov. Ak sa prilis budes riadit GPS pochopis, ze priama cesta nie je vzdy najschodnejsia. Ale cim sa vlastne riadit? Teren je tam vsade viac ako vzrusujuci. Pochopis, ze cesta hore nie vzdy vedie hore a cesta dole nie vzdy vedie dole (napr. ked sa konci priepastou). V kazdom pripade cestu zvladne ktokolvek, len odporucam ako celodenny vylet. S prestavkami na vyhlady a lezanie v trave v panenskej prirode a obcasnym bludenim vam moze vylet trvat aj zopar hodin.

I invite you to take a walk through the wonderful forests of the Choc mountains. You will find ancient trees, mountain meadows, rock walls and towers, and you'll hear the water flowing merily through the grass. All this time, birds of prey will carefuly watch your steps, circling high above your head. Keep your eyes open and enjoy the beauty of nature!

The spring months of March through June are the nesting season of many protected birds of prey. Especially at this time of the year we should avoid disturbing their habitat, while they are incubating the eggs or raising the hatchlings. If you cannot avoid a visit, please keep as quiet as you can. Thank you!

Visiting in winter or rainy weather can be dangerous and is not recommended due to slippery terrain. Good hiking shoes and poles will help at all times. Park your car in the picturesque village, where Juraj Janosik, a legendary Slovak outlaw, was caught many days ago. Park in the center of the village, or if you feel adventurous, on the country road above the village at the altitude of approx. 735m above sea level. After leaving the well-marked hiking trail, you will soon arrive at the start coordinates where you'll find a fixed hunting stand built up in the trees (altitude 830m above sea level). You're almost there - the treasure is just 300 meters from you, and the hunting stand will tell you the final coordinates:

N49°08.(10 x C x B + 9) E019°18.(25 x A + 3)

A = how many steps does the ladder have? odd number, ignore the steps nailed to the tree trunk
B = how many trees support the hunting stand?
C = which direction does the door face? north = 49 / east = 16 / south = 55 / west = 8
* remember - multiplication has higher priority than subtraction

At this point, you may have already spotted the Dragon Teeth smiling at your from up above! You'll understand the smile when you get there - the place offers wonderful views of the surrounding forrests, mountains and villages. The cache is located under the remains of an uprooted tree. Even though the cache is only 300 meters away from the hunting stand, it pretty much depends on which track you take - it may take you 40 minutes but also one and half hour. Most likely you will not meet anyone in that virgin forest (no hiking trails in the 1km diameter) but you may see a deer or a fox if you are lucky. If you choose the wrong track, however, it will thoroughly test your rock-climbing skills and guide you through the thick forest in a 60° slope. In such cases, the terrain difficulty will rise to 4 or more.

While wandering around the cache, you may rest in places with amazing vistas - be sure to check the additional waypoints.

NB:
The location of this cache was selected so that you can enjoy the nice views and beautiful nature, and the cache itself may not be that important after all. Sometimes the path is the goal. In the distance, you will see towns (Ruzomberok) and mountain ranges (Mala Fatra from Martinske Hole to Rozsutec) all around you. You will see nice rocks of bizarre shapes. If you let the GPS guide you, you will find that the direct path may not the shortest. But how to navigate? Terrain is very exciting all around there and you will find that the way up is not always a way up, and the way down is not always a way down (it may, for example, end in a cliff). One way or another, the track is suitable for anyone, but expect to spend several hours there, including the time to rest at viewpoints, lying on meadows in virgin nature and some straying and roaming.
