One or more climbing days around Zelene pleso (Green Lake)

One or more climbing days around Zelene pleso (Green Lake) | undefined

Zelene pleso or Green Lake in Slovakia is a fantastic uncrowded spot to enjoy one or more days of climbing with the company of Eduard, local IFMGA guide.


+1 Day

All year



Zelene pleso, also known as the Green Lake, is a fantastic Slovak moraine lake situated in the Dolina Zeleného plesa, a valley of the High Tatras. Lying at 1545 meters in height, the Green Lake offers the best setting to enjoy some rock climbing time surrounded by astonishing granite formations.

It’ll be my pleasure to guide you there for one or several days and climb the amazing spires that the Tatra mountains has for you. I also love to take my friends and clients to Zelene pleso because it’s not a typical destination. Indeed it’s a perfect option for those who are seeking a wild and uncrowded climbing spot to leave the stress of the city behind.

As for the itinerary, we’ll meet up in the White Water Parking lot. From there, we’ll enjoy a panoramic 2-hour hike to the hut, which is located on the shore of the Green lake, at the ending point of the famous Tatras Haute Route. Once there we can try some of the main granite needles of the area, such as the Jastrabia Tower, the Kozi stit or the Black Peak.

These climbing journeys are available all year round and open to everyone. There is no technical or physical requirement to join this adventure. In addition we can combine it with some hiking itineraries.

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.
