Roháčska Dolina and Látaná Dolina are two small valleys which merge into a larger one, commonly called Roháčska Studená Dolina or Zuberska Studená Dolina.
This Y-shaped system of valleys located into the Slovak Tatras makes a good place to ride a race-bike, as all the distance is asphalted. Zuberska Studená Dolina is open to cars until Zverovka Chata, the hut at the limit of the national park and trailhead. Upper, both valleys Roháčska Dolina and Látaná Dolina are prohibited to motorized vehicles.

Roháčska Dolina, 5km long, gains approximately 380m of height, while Látaná Dolina, twice shorter on its asphalted part, climbs 320m. Both valleys end with with hiking trailheads and can shorten approaches. Roháčska Dolina ends with a small chalet, Ťatliakova Chata, in which we cannot sleep, but has a restaurant. Látaná Dolina, much wilder and spared with crowds, ends only with what looks like a wooden bus stop.

One can pin a bike on both of these places. Ťatliakova Chata is the usual starting point for visiting on foot the Roháče lakes (or more), and Látaná Dolina leads to the peaklet of Rákoň. But the only ride unveils gorgeous views in both.

Zverovka Chata is a place where one can accommodate and eat, but it is often fully booked. Better look for a places to stay lower and closer to Zuberec.
