Mountains Tatras

The Mountains Tatras are a mountain range that separates Slovakia of Poland, although only 30% is in Polish territory.

They have an approximate length of 60 kilometres of long and some 30 kilometres of width. Can differentiate the High Tatras in the oriental part with a more alpine appearance, and the Tatras west in the western part softer. They form part ofthe mountain range of the Cárpatos.

The Slovakian part was declared national park in 1948 and the Polish zone did it in 1953.

This trek passes by all his length, of East to West beginning in the Slovakian location of Zdiar and finalising in the also Slovakian location of Zuberec with three intermediate stages in Polish territory around the location of Zakopane.

We will visit a total of 141 kilometres and a desnivel total positive accumulated of more than 10.000 metres and other so many of desnivel negative. The route can realise in 8 stages that are those that propose in this circuit.

The trek does not present difficulty any, apart from the strong throw off balance to save each day and the big number of kilometres to visit. It is necessary to mention that some ascensiones that will have to realise are very vertical and aerial, provistas with chains and grapas. Besides, big part of the route passes by crests by what will have to be attentive to the meteorological conditions and descend to the valleys in case of storm.

The ways accustom to be empedrados by big blocks of granite that built Polish workers and Slovaks during the socialist period.

We can access to Zdiar, well from the Polish population of Zakopne or from the Slovakian population of Poprad. To access from the Polish part the best is to arrive to Poland through aeroplane to the city of Krakow, from here a train until Zakopne (4h) and finally a bus to Zdiar (1:30h).
