  • To get to the top without the appropriate equipped and mountain guide is almost impossible. For the inexperienced man even gambling. When you get to the top and he wishes them to you, weather you can expect a wonderful reward for all the effort you put forth.

  • Highest mountain in Slovakia at 2655m above sea level. If you would like to hike here I recommend mountain guide with licence. The hike is not suitable for recreational tourists as it includes also muntain climbing and special equipment.
  • Awesome walk - and recommending to stay in Sliezsky dom
  • Gerlachovský štít (About this sound Slovak pronunciation (help·info), translated into English as Gerlach Peak) is the highest peak in the High Tatras, in Slovakia, and in the whole 1,500 km (930 mi) long Carpathian mountain chain. Usually listed at 2,655 metres AMSL (8,711 ft), its exact elevation is actually 0.6 metres (2.0 feet) lower.[citation needed] The pyramidal shape of the massif is marked by a huge cirque. Despite its relatively low elevation, the about 2,000 m vertical rise from the valley floor makes Gerlachovský štít soar.[3] Mistaken for an average mountain in the rugged High Tatras range in the more distant past, it has since played a symbolic role in the eyes of the rulers and populations of several Central European nations, to the point that between the 19th and mid-20th century, it had four different names with six name reversals. It managed to be the highest mountain of the Kingdom of Hungary, and of the countries of Czechoslovakia and Slovakia within the span of only about two decades of the 20th century.
