Guidebook to walking in the High Tatras mountains on the Poland-Slovakia
border, and the neighbouring White and Western Tatras ranges. Describes
the network of waymarked routes throughout the ranges and suggests
walking itineraries. Full background information on walking in the
Tatras. Stunning scenery and wildlife.
The sight of the craggy peaks of the High Tatras mountains straddling
the Poland-Slovakia border is unforgettable, beautiful and dramatic.
With a dusting of snow and a swirl of mist, they assume the ghostly
appearance of a phantom army.
As well as the High Tatras, the
second edition of this book also covers the neighbouring but contrasting
White and Western Tatras ranges. It is currently the only English
language guidebook covering this spectacular area in depth.
two sides of the range, in Slovakia and Poland, offer totally
contrasting experiences. In Slovakia, you can walk from several
villages strung out along the foot of the range and linked by a tramway.
In Poland, there is just one main resort, Zakopane, a delightful small
town that retained its traditional atmosphere through the ravages of
the Communist era.
The co-authors are Colin Saunders, a member of
the Outdoor Writers Guild, who has visited the area many times, and
Renáta Náro˛ná, who was born and bred there. Together they provide a
detailed insight into the possibilities for walking at all levels from
easy through moderate to strenuous.
The book also includes
sections on history, vegetation and wildlife, weather, languages,
preparations for your trip, accommodation and local attractions. For
anyone wishing to visit the High Tatras, this book is a must.
