This book is the only English-language guide to cover in depth the hiking opportunities in the spectacular High Tatras mountain range, as well as the neighbouring but contrasting White and Western Tatras ranges.
The beautiful and dramatic craggy peaks of the High Tatras mountains straddle the border between Poland and Slovakia, and both sides offer totally different experiences. On the Slovak side you can hike from several villages along the foot of the range. In Poland there is just one main base, the lovely small town of Zakopane, which has retained its traditional atmosphere despite the turmoil of the Communist era.
The guide includes full background information on the area's history, wildlife and languages as well as detailed planning information on border control, accommodation and equipment. It is an ideal companion for anyone visiting the unforgettable High Tatras.
