Eduard, an IFMGA mountain guide based in Slovakia, takes you on a climbing trip to Mount Gerlach, the highest peak in the High Tatras, at 2654 m.

Carpathian Mountains

1 Day

All year


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!

Eduard Kuro



Mountain Guide

I’m an IFMGA mountain guide born in west Slovakia, in 1973. Nowadays I live in Poprad, a city 10 km away from the High Tatras, the mountains where I’ve been working for 25 years.

I came to High Tatras when I was student, in the summer of 1991. I started to work as a mountain carrier-sherpa in the chalet Rysy. I was also a professional member of the mountain rescue service.

In 2011, I finished my mountain education in Chamonix and became an international mountain guide. I also worked as a cave rescuer in Slovakia.

During winter, I enjoy ski-mountaineering, freeride, ice climbing and ascending different peaks. On the summer season, I practice mountain climbing, hiking, mountain bike, rock climbing, guiding and a lot of other sports.

Besides traveling with clients, I sometimes go to the mountain alone or with my friends and son.

I offer courses for avalanche education, ski-mountaineering, rock and ice climbing. I also organize special team-building activities for clients and I’m used to working with young people and children.

What people are saying about this trip



The man is made for speed so you better train yourself well if you want to hike with Kuro. He is flying in those mountains :) The experience of hiking with him was amazing and i will highly recommend him.



Communication could be improved. I got informed about start of the tour as well as additional fees on very short notice.



Eduard Lipták was the best guide that I could possibly have hoped for. He ensured that I had a fantastic - and safe - climb.
