Between the hills of Baníkov and the Ostrý Roháč, there is the hill of Plačlivé, often called "Plačlivô". It is a less known hill belonging to the central ridge of the Western Tatras. It is characterized by its cliffyand quite sharp peak, which extends significantly into the surroundings.

Elders may know the hill also under the name "Plačivý Roháč" and together with Ostrý Roháč, they were an impetus for marking this part of the Western Tatras as a characteristic mountain group of Roháče. Plačlivé peak is also a crossroads of several tourist routes.

From the top of Plačlivé, you can enjoy breathtaking views of the dominant peaks of Ostrý Roháč and Volovec, but also to Smutná Valley or Roháčske lakes. In good weather, you can also see Orava Dam or Liptovska Mara.

The ascent to Plačlivé Stredne is a challenging hike with a large elevation. The simplest and probably the most popular ascent route leads from the mouth of the Žiarska Valley (approx. 8 km)
