Description

The High Tatras are a mountain range towering along the border of north Slovakia and south Poland. Let’s go for an incredible climbing trip there!

These mountains, which are a part of the Carpathians, are also a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve with many endemic species like the Tatra chamois.

It’s also a very attractive region for outdoor lovers, boasting many interesting options for hiking, climbing and skiing.

This time, I propose climbing the 3 highest peaks in Slovakia, in a sort of ‘Tatras trilogy‘. It’s a very demanding climbing trip that can take between 3 to 5 days, depending on your physical conditions and the weather.

Here are the three summits we’ll reach:

Mount Gerlach (Gerlachovský ští)

At 2654 m, this impressive pyramid-shaped peak is the highest in Slovakia and also in the whole Carpathians. We can take different routes to ascent this peak, according to the weather conditions and the skills of the group members.

Lomnicky Peak (Lomnický štít)

This is the second highest peak of the High Tatras, at 2634 m. It’s also one of the most popular attractions in Slovakia, as it has a cable car going up to its summit, where there’s an absolutely breathtaking view!

However, we’re not taking the easy way. Instead, we’ll choose of the several climbing routes.

Ladovy peak (Ľadový štít) 

At 2627 m, Ladovy peak is probably the most technically challenging climb of this ‘Tatras trilogy’.

We’ll take an exposed ridge towards the summit, where we’ll enjoy a stunning view of the whole High Tatras mountain range.

Are you ready to take the challenge? Follow me on this climbing trip in a unique and wild region of Slovakia!

I was born in 1969 in Ostrava. When I was a child, my parents and I spent most of our free time and weekends in our cottage in Beskydy in the countryside. I started skiing when I was very young, we went to Moravian and Slovak ski resorts. In 2010 I successfully passed my IFMGA exams and I became an official mountain guide. I’m also a photographer and a graphic designer. I’m guiding my friends and clients mainly in the Tatras Mountains. Please feel free to contact me if you wish to discover this beautiful region, during the summer or the winter. We can go hiking, climbing, mountaineering, skiing...together.
