River description:

The river sources in High Tatra Mountains, at confluence of Tichý and Koprový brook. The river flows in south-west direction, and near to Liptovsky Hradok it mouths into Váh-river. River-basin makes 245 square kilometres, the length of navigable section makes 24 kms.

Belá is a typical mountain small river. In its upper flow, it has narrow basin, full of stones with great slope. From mouth of Račkovy brook, the river-banks are flat, with wide gravel river-bed, changing very often during high water level. In its lower section, this wide river-bed is regulated. Along Belá-river, the weirs are missing. Anyway, the navigation is more difficult, owing to tree-bridges and fallen trees, often visible at last moment. However, there are no camping places available, there is only one suitable place, at Belá mouth to Váh-river. The river is suitable for more experienced watermen with covbered boats (vessels), especially for drive at its upper section. Each year, there is regularly organized joint descent  – within scope of  International WatermenTatra Circle.

There are waterway-registers on Belá, however, their values are not too decisive, owing to often changing river-side-view. The navigability could be judged in visual way below bridge in Liptovsky Hrádok, or it is necessary to rely on the indication on water-register in 0,8 km point (it would be here 70 cm as a minimum). Upper section - from confluence of both brooks up to Podbanske is navigable at 50 cm stage on water-register, in Podbanske on 21,4 km.
