Would you like to experience an amazing mountaineering adventure in Slovakia? Then let’s climb the impressive Gerlach Peak!

The Gerlach (2,655m), formally named Gerlachov Peak, is the highest peak in the High Tatras and the Carpathian mountain range. Due to its altitude, accessibility and beautiful mountain scenery, it is one of the most popular peaks in Central Europe.

For this ascent, we can choose to take one of the following different routes, depending on your mountaineering skills and your wishes:

Normal route (8hs)

This climb is technically easy and crosses the Velicka and Batizovska valleys. The starting point is the Horský Hotel Sliezsky dom.

Gypsy’s ferrata (9hs)

Starting from the same point as the Normal route, this ascent follows an exposed ridge on the North face of Gerlach, all the way to its summit. It requires advanced skills.

Martin’s route (10hs)

This long, exposed and breathtaking ascent involves rock and ice climbing. The starting point is also the Horský Hotel Sliezsky dom.

Winter route (8hs)

Winter offers a totally different view of the High Tatras. If you are planning to come in this season, the ascent and descent is through the Batizovska Valley.

So, if you are up an unforgettable mountaineering expedition in Central Europe, please contact me. Let me guide you to the top of the Gerlach, the highest peak of the High Tatras!

About the guide

Mountain Guide

I am a Slovak IFMGA guide, born in the mountains and thanks to my parents, I discovered the beauty of them early on. I started hiking, skiing and climbing there. Later, I improved my experiences as voluntary mountain rescuer, ski and climbing instructor. In 2012, I successfully passed examination and I became an official IFMGA mountain guide.

My home area is Tatras in Slovakia. I would like to share the feeling of the mountains with my clients that have no ambition to be a serious mountaineer. I love sharing great moments during freeriding, ski touring, avalanche courses, hiking or climbing. Not just in Slovakia!

Would you like to spend a nice day in the mountain with the feeling of safety and new experiences with a mountain guide?

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
