TREKkING PATHS IN THE HIGH TATRAS

 

The High Tatras are familiar to every hiker in Central Europe. Their relatively small area includes diverse forests, magnificent glacial valleys, charming waterfalls and lakes and if they lack anything in area, it is more than made up for by the wealth of hiking and climbing opportunities they offer. You can take some of the easy paths like “the Tatra highway”  which takes hikers the length of  the High Tatras from  West to  East or climb some of their rocky peaks including the highest of all – Gerlach (2 655 m). Do note, however, that if you wish to climb this summit, you will have to be accompanied by an experienced mountain guide.

Note:  The walking/hiking paths are graded from 1 to 5 (1 – easy walking, small ascents/descents ; 5 – heavy trekking, steep ascents/descents, rocks, climbing supported by chains).
