Description

I invite you to a climbing trip in Mount Gerlach (2654 m), the highest peak in the High Tatras, Slovakia.

The Hight Tatras are a mountain range in the border between Slovakia and Poland. They are part of the Carpathian Mountains.

Mount Gerlach is one of the most climbed peaks in this area, not only because of its height, but also due to its ease of access and unique scenery. It’s located in the Tatra National Park.

It is also the top 1 in the ranking of climbing trips with a certified mountain guide in the country.

It is possible to climb Mount Gerlach all year long. In fact, the winter ascent is unique thanks to its technical passage and long trough that leads to the summit. In good weather conditions, it is a spectacular alpine tour.

The starting point for this trip is Sliezsky dom, a hotel in the mountains. Once there, I’ll check your equipment and make sure you are ready for this adventure!

While hiking, I will share with you comments about the mountains and the local topography. I can also take some pictures if you want to.

The main reason I enjoy guiding here is that I like helping people to make their dreams come true and guide them safely to those dreams. 

So if you want to reach an interesting summit and have an amazing experience in the mountains, please contact me. It will be my pleasure to take you to the highest peak in my country!
