the Gerlachovsky peak (2,655m) is the highest mountain not only in the Tatras mountain range, but also in the entire country of Slovakia. And on this full day trip, which will last between 8 and 10 hours, you will get the chance to climb to its summit.

There are several different routes you can take to the top of the Gerlachovsky, all of which start from Sliezky Dom. All of the routes are accessible year round, depending on weather conditions, of course. As a result of the variety of routes, the difficulty level of the climb varies. For example, if you are an expert climber looking for a challenge, you can take the Martinovka or Dzipsiho Ferata routes. And if you are an average climber looking to improve, you can take the easier and more popular Velicka Proba route. However, regardless of your skill level, you do need to be in good physical condition, and have some previous climbing experience.

Whichever route you decide on, I can assure you that you will have a fantastic climbing experience. Also, when you reach the summit of Gerlachovsky, you will be able to gaze out into the Tatras, and stare at awe at its amazing collection of jagged peaks. Furthermore, the climb itself will provide you with a thrilling physical experience that will see you ascend over 1,100 metres in a single day.

So if you are looking for a great day of physical exertion, along with some amazing views from the summit of one of Europe’s finest peaks, send me a request, and join me to the top of Gerlachovsky. I know you will have a great time.

I can also lead you to the summit of another amazing mountain in the Tatras, the Vyzoka peak.
