Description

Join me for an unforgettable climbing trip to Lomnický peak, the second highest peak in the High Tatras, at 2634 m.

Lomnický peak is one of the most beautiful peaks in the High Tatras (Slovakia) and therefore, one of the most visited spots by tourists and mountain climbers. The main reason for this is the spectacular view from its summit.

This peak has a wide range of climbing routes. However, you can also reach the top by taking a cable car, in an 8.5 minute ride.

The starting point of our trip will be Tatranská Lomnica, a skiing and hiking resort at 900 m. A cable car will take us from the station in Tatranská Lomnica to Lomnické sedlo / Lomnické saddle (at 2196 m). Here, we’ll begin our hike.

Personally, I prefer to climb this peak through an old historical route called Emericyho nárek. This route was originally used in 1930´s.  It was created to bring the building material for the construction of the cable car station and the observatory at Lomnický peak up. This will be an intermediate level ascent with breathtaking views.

We will descend through a chimney, a classical route protected by the chains, following to the edge and ending up in the Lomnické saddle. This mountain circuit can take up to 6 hours during summer.

Even though you can climb Lomnický peak in any time of the year, you should be aware that an ascent during the winter season is more difficult and requires more experience, skills and a good physical condition.

Please contact me if you want to join me for this climbing trip in Slovakia! It will be a pleasure for me to guide you in the mountains where I’ve been working for the last 25 years.
