Guided ascent of Lomnický Peak, in the High Tatras

Guided ascent of Lomnický Peak, in the High Tatras | undefined

Reach the summit of Lomnický peak and enjoy a stunning view of the High Tatras, in this 1-day climbing trip together with an IFMGA mountain guide.

Carpathian Mountains

1 Day

All year


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.

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 Eduard Kuro



Kuro is a very experienced and knowledgeable guide, and a great guy. Highly recommend.



Disorganised chaos. In spite of having booked months before we were given little information about what the trip would entail or where we were going. Extras included paying for the hire of snow boots & getting the cable car. All of which is not a problem but would have been handy to know - especially as the cost of the snow boots wasn't mentioned until we were on our way home. Eduard was very knowledgeable however he would only extend this knowledge to my male friend whom he told to encourage us as his English wasn't good (so why offer the service in English?). The climb itself was exhilarating & the setting truly beautiful.



Eduard took my husband and I ice climbing for our first time. Eduard took great care of us, had great communication and is a lovely person to spend a day with. He is an expert in the field and it shows! He took care of all the logistics on the trip to make our experience comfortable. The experience exceeded our expectations. We were both able to climb a beautiful waterfall and enjoy the High Tatras.



I had a nice time with the guide , he had to change the place and the date we climbed , because the weather was absolutely not favorable for the climb I originally booked ... I wonder what happens if the trip is canceled because the weather won’t allow it



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.
