Roháče is a long and demanding trail in Western Tatras. It goes along a ridge at about 2000 m a.s.l. and offers gorgeous views, exposure and steep rocks which force to concentration on every step. I was fascinated!
Last winter 15 tourists died in Tatra Mountains. What to do, to not share their fate and be safe in winter in this mountain range? Read few things, I learned on winter mountaineering course.
Beautiful route leading along a brook in Studená Dolina and through two saddles: Prielom (2288 m a.s.l.) and Poľský hrebeň (eng. Polish Comb) at 2200 m a.s.l. First part of route was easy trial with lovely views of brook and waterfall but Prielom and Poľský hrebeň gave us a hard time.
Giewont is 1894 m high and has characteristic profile of – as legend says – sleeping knight. It is located close to Zakopane city what makes it very popular and crowded. I suggest not to go there during summer weekend unless you want to wait 3 hours in queue to the peak :)
