High Tatras Hiking
If clean mountain air, a variety of rock formations, and a good solid hike are on your list of things to do for a good time, then the High Tatras are for you. This particular location can be reached via the quaint ski village of Novy Smokovec in Slovakia. Once you have arrived and explored the town, make your way to the tram and take it up to the start of the five different hiking paths. Each hike is unique in its own right, and will require varying degrees of skill and equipment. A 'chata,' or resting house, awaits you at the end of each endeavor. Dress warm, bring good boots and pack a camera, friend, for your adventure awaits.
