Weekend trip to The High Tatras

DSCN2010sAs I had to visit Katowice to purchase the final piece of equipment for the upcoming expedition –snow shoes TLS  325 Adventure I used this opportunity to trek The High Tatras with the best companion – a heavy backpack wink

I spent my first night in Roztoka mountain hut. Despite frequent visits in The High Tatras I never had the opportunity to visit it. I was always drawn higher to Morskie Oko or Rysy. As it turned out undeservedly – helpful staff and delicious meals make it hard to leave and continue with the journey. In the hut there is a fridge and small kitchen for use free of charge. All these reasons make this hut very popular and getting accommodation without a reservation is difficult. It happened to me as well – I spend the night on the floor along with a few others – luckily I had my sleeping bag.

Despite hot weather in the lowlands and summer starting next week in the higher parts of Tatras there is still snow. It makes it dangerous to cross steep slopes – use of crampons and ice axe is advised.

Despite uncertain weather I managed to avoid any thunderstorms and even meet a mountain goat along the way smiley
