Tatry/Tatra hiking

by 68maciek

Season and frequency

First of all Slovakian Tatra is almost closed between November-June. Polish not at all. But be experienced, prepared and equipped for ice and snow conditions avalanches.
Polish Tatry is overcrowded in high season July-August. Slovakian part is as well but less.

I would say that in Slovakian Tatry (Zapadne- Western Tatry) the less frequented area is Rochace.

Basically weekends in Polish Tatra are not advisable for somebody who likes to be on its own.

Nizke Tatry is less crowded.
I believe that the crowded paradise can be also visited- if you are interested search for Slovensky Raj.
Less crowded places:
Chocske Verchy is also interesting.
Other ones are Mala and Velka Fatra.

The best time to come is September and October for my money due to low rainfall statistics and less tourist.

Polish/Slovakian/Czech hikers who prefers calmer places often go to Ukrainian or Romanian Karpaty , some also to Bulgarian or Serbian, Macedonian mountains.

But you will also find less frequented mountains in countries mentioned by you.

In case of emergency (read often as frivolously) one pays on his/her own for rescue in Slovakia. I pay in such case for somebody else in Poland (from my taxes)so far. So you may need insurance which cover such accidents in Slovakia.

Slovakia has excellent of system train in Tatry area (electricka).
Minibuses system on Polish side is pretty efficient.

Buses are the best for longer routes in both countries.

You can easily depend on inns, huts etc.

Nizke Tatry- you can make a ridge trip including usage of standard mountain hostels in area of Chopok and self-service (and crowded in the high season) huts such as Andrejcova and Ramze.
Tatry- you can make trips from one mountain hostel to another. It is sometimes better to stay in one place longer and make more demanding routes 'on light'.
Some prefer stay few nights in valley's villages.
Many Slovakian mountain accommodation places have rather status of few stars hotels than hostels, which means they will not allow you to stay if no places.
In many Polish mountain hostels you are allowed to sleep on the floor if no space.

Generally if you want to have a better comfort booking in advance could be an option.

Apart from the crowd, some places in Polish Tatry are quite distinctive like:
the most difficult route Orla perc (The Eagles' Path), Morskie Oko- The Sea Eye Lake (probably the most frequented place in all Tatry, a bit overrated for me), dolina (Polskich) Pieciu Stawow- Five (Polish) Lakes Valley is stunning. Mylna (Confusing) cave is not long but only one to visit on your own in Tatry.

Length of stay
It is easy to imagine the someone who likes not only hiking, but also wants to see (especially in a rainy day ) historical/folklore spots, guided caves, UNESCO heritage places such as wooden churches and thermal pools (not my favourite), can spend in this area not only two, but even more weeks.

Krakow is only ~~2,5 hours from Zakopane by bus. The distance is 120km but we complain our roads.

From the last bus stop 45 min to Wodogrzmoty then 2.5 h to Dolina Piec Stawow (which you mentioned in your post title).The hostel (shroniska has a nice atmoshere.
Orla Perc- Eagle's route is nice the bravest (but secured) in Tatry and takes long time.It better to devoted one long full day for it.
You can come back to Zakopane trough passes in Eagel's Route like Zawrat (the most popular), Kozia Przelecz or Krzyzne, then Hala Gasienicowa- Kuznice (Zakopane)- it takes all day long.
You can also make a loop- Lysa Polana (Palenica)- Piec Stawow- and come back via Swistowka- Morskie Oko (shorter) or Szpiglasowa Przelecz (pass)-Morskie Oko-(long~~12km asphalt road) to Lysa Polana(Palenica).Morskie Oko has an opinon of the very beautyfull place (and most crowded)in Poland.
There is snow usually till mid May in Piec Stawow (but access possible).

Travel Tips for Zakopane

Shuttle bus

by acemj

From the main bus station in Zakopane you can catch a number of different shuttle buses to nearby town and to various hiking/skiing attractions. You can also catch shuttle buses from the south eastern end of Kuprowk near the intersection of Tetmajera. In order to get to Mt. Kasprowy Wierch, I caught a shuttle bus from here to Kuznice, for which I only paid 2 zl.

The Zakopane Style

by tpal

During the 19th Century, Zakopane bacame a favorite retreat for artist of all types. Among those was Stanislaw Witkiewicz who is credited with the creation of the "Zakopane Style" of architecture. Many of the original buildings he designed can still be found along with many others clearly influenced by him. The cedar shake roofs and natural finish siding create picture postcard views.

Hiking in the mountains 2

by zaffaran

Quite an easy trip (although a bit long and tiring) is getting from Morskie Oko to 5-Lake-Valley (Dolina Pieciu Stawow Polskich) via Swistowka. Picturesque views, not difficult route make this trip a nice experience. It will take you about 3 (or 4- if you want to admire the views :-)) or if you not fit enough) to reach Dolina Pieciu Stawow Polskich. Afterwards you have to count another 2 hours to rech Wodogrzmoty Mickiewicz down Dolina Roztoki (Roztoka Valley) and 1 more hour to reach a car park (or a bus stop) at Palenica Bialczanska) . So you need one day to experience the mountains. My advice is to start your trip early in the morning (staying in the mountain hut is the best solution) to avoid crowds

Cable car up to High Tatras

by vesna04

It was wonderful!!! I found out it can be long wait to get into the car but it was not the case at the time of my visit. . There was a nice cafe frome where you could have the wonderful views.
I wanted to ski down, but was to scared as a bigginer, so return the same way-by cable car.
Kasprowy Wierch is on the Slovakia border
