Awesome view from the highest peak of Slovakia. The whole trip takes approximately 6 hours and you need to have a certified mountain guide with you (1 guide can take up to 3 clients with him). Medium skilled hiker will have no problem to climb on the top. Unforgetable experience.

As a Slovak I was obliged to go there. We had an excellent mountain guide. The track is difficult but totally worth it.

You need a guide, which is not very cheap, but it is a rule. Also is very good to have special insurance and good equipment including helmet. The best time for visiting is Indian summer (end of september till october). The hike is very beautiful, not very hard but also not for beginners, there are 2 foot-trails to go up... More
