We offer you the opportunity to hike to the highest peak in Prievidza district, which is the natural frontier between Trenčín and Žilina Regions. The name of the peak is Kľak
If you are too tired to drive, you can travel by bus to where the trail begins (buses leave daily from the Prievidza Bus Station at 8.00 and 9.20 AM, direction Žilina). The bus takes you to Fačkovské Sedlo, from where you follow the trail markers.

After you finish your hike, you can have lunch at the Salaš pod Kľakom, where traditional Slovak specialties are served.
