Trip to the Molpir Hill: The Waterfall and the Celtic Settlement in the Small Carpathians Mountains
The waterfall in the Small Carpathians Mountains really exists only in the spring, when ice is melting. That is why the waterfall is called the Occasional Waterfall.
The occasional waterfall is located at the end of the Dolina Hlboca Valley, which begins just above the village Smolenice. Follow a blue-marked path, which is a part of the instructive path of Smolenicky Kras Karst. At the end of the valley is also a small cave known as a Christian pilgrimage site.
Continue along with the blue-marked path until the Luka Vlciaren Meadow. Then turn right and take yellow mark. To see the valley from a bird perspective you have to take no signed path on your right. Below on left side is the Molpir Hill.
The yellow mark shows the path to the Smolenice Castle. The important archeological site Molpir is nearby.
There are remains of the fortified Celtic settlement from the Hallstat period. Archaeologists have uncovered evidences of cannibalism there.

Najjednoduchšia cesta na Molpír
Pôjdete popri kostole vlavo k cintorinu, pri ktorom je prva turisticka tabula vrchu Molpir (na kopci). Odtial pôjdete len po zelenej znacke, po chodniku. Je uplne viditelny, neda sa kde zabludit!
Dakujeme neznamemu prispievatelovi. Najjednoduchsiu cestu vyskusame pri najblizsom vylete na Molpir. (ib)
