Title :
Long weekend in Tatra Mountains
Date :
Thu 30.05.2019
Type of event :
Hike (Hut Trek), 3+ days
Organized by :
Mateusz Zozlak & Zuzanna Brzozowska
Description :

Tatra mountains are the highest mountains in Poland. Offer peaks up to 2400 m, nice granite wals and hikes of different difficulty.

A sketch of the plan is as follows:

The date may seem a little unfortunate but it's a compromise between going as late as possible (to assure there is no snow left), avoiding enourmous crowds during a holiday season (starting mid June) and taking into account our other activities scheduled for June. The good thing about it is we'll have plenty of time allowing us to see more and be more flexible.

This trip requires you to be a good hiker. It's nothing more then hiking but it's definitely a difficult one with long days, high altitude differences, some artificial aids (chains, steps) here and there (something more or less like an A ferrata in Austria), passing narrow ridges, traversing almost vertical walls, etc.

We assume we hike in summer conditions only. If there's still snow/ice on the route, we change a route (there shouldn't be snow in Tatra mountains at the end of May but it doesn't mean it can't happen).

Participants limit is 7 including me and Zuzia.
