TREKKING IN THE WESTERN TATRAS

 

The Western Tatras are similar in character to the High Tatras; trekking trails in the forests, stone pavements, rocks (climbing supported by chains). These mountains are for those who like to get away from the crowds. The Western Tatras offer the possibility to walk along the summit ridge and the panoramic views from there are awe-inspiring.

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).
