Enthusiasts of intact nature and tourism will certainly appeale to the national nature reserve Harmanecká tisina, which lies north of the Malý Šturec Saddle. It is part of the Greater Fatra National Park.

It is the area with the largest natural occurrence of the relic from Tertiary period - the European yew. Interestingly, the oldest specimens are about 500-600 years old.

The European yew grows here in beech forests with spruce, fir and mountain maple. The subject of protection is therefore mainly the yew, but also karst forms of georelief.

The Harmanecká tisina Nature Reserve is one of the oldest in Slovakia, it was proclaimed already in 1949.
