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.
Sheeps, sore feet and dreams of kebab – that’s what I remembered the most from my trip to Vereda de la Estrella, one of the most popular trails in Sierra Nevada mountains. I walked 33 km with 1300 m of denivelation this day and my plans were even more ambitious.
Mulhacén (3479 m) is the highest peak in the Iberian Peninsula, located in Sierra Nevada National Park. There are a few trails leading to the summit. Some of them are easy but I chose the harder one – from Trevélez village. I almost succeeded ;)
Known for being the highest village in Spain, for ham and for wonderful hiking routes – Trevélez, the village which I visited one year ago. Read what you can expect there.
Do you like mushrooms? What about mushroom rocks? :) It’s aggregation of rocks which shape resembles mushrooms, in Stołowe Mountains (Table mountains). Close to this area you can see also the peat bog Niknąca Łąka – another attraction of this National Park.
Stołowe Mountains (Table Mountains) is low mountain range in Sudetes, characterised by unusual rock formations. I propose you 28 km hike, during which you will see one of the best places in Stołowe Mountains National Park.
2499 m a.s.l. – the highest point of Poland, lying on the border with Slovakia. The steep and long trail, with amazing views on surrounding mountains and lakes. Worth to visit!
One of the best known places in Polish Bieszczady is Wetlińska Polonyna and Chatka Puchatka (eng. The House at Pooh Corner) – the highest mountain hut in this mountain range. Hiking trails to these places are easy, suitable also for children and elderly. If you like to soak up views at low altitudes, come to Poland and see this part of Bieszczady :)
Tarnica is 1346 m a.s.l. and is the highest and the most popular peak of polish part of Bieszczady mountain range. It’s easy to get there and it offers nice views but in summer weekends you have to be prepared for many tourists.
