Approximately two thirds up the valley is the Kovinar alpine hut (892 m) with 15 berths, a popular stop off point for mountaineers. This hut was originally adapted from a shepherd's hut and opened in 1948. In 1959, a new, bigger hut was built by workers from Jeseniceironworks. It was renovated in 1983. It is open from the beginning of June until the end of September.
