Ostredok is the highest mountain of the Greater Fatra Range, Slovakia, measuring 1,592 m (5,223 ft). It lies in the Hôlna Fatra part of the range which is typical by its deforested and rather flat gentle summits not rising much above the main ridge. Its south-western is rather steep with big danger of snow avalanches in winter. There are excellent views at most of the Slovak mountains.
