Kmetov waterfall Koprova valley Slovakia

Kmeťov waterfall is approximately 80 meters high and it is therefore the tallest waterfall in Slovakia, located in Koprova valley in the High Tatras. The waterfall has two steps, which fall through a crack rock threshold. The waterfall is created by Nefcerský stream, which is above it at an altitude of 1245 m and is 1.5 m wide. The highest waterfall can be seen during the trip through Koprova Valley.

Koprova valley is a 12 km long valley with numerous side valleys. It is situated between the Western and High Tatras under the western slopes of the dominant peak Kriváň (one of the Slovak symbol). Koprova valley and the surroundings of the peak Krivan do remember the old mining tradition, especially associated with gold mining activities.

Hiking trails along Koprova valley allow tourists to admire the waterfalls and lakes. It is possible to ascend to the saddles and to the Kôprovský peak. At the lower part of the forested valley, the trail is created alongside the Kôprovský stream.
