Product Description

Review

'For the keen walker this excellent guide offers an area which is both less well-know and a challenge. As well as the High Tatras, this second edition covers the neighbouring White Tatras in Slovakia and the Western Tatras in Poland. Colin Saunders has wide experience of walking in many parts of Britain and is a member of the Outdoor Writer's Guild, while Renata Narozna was born and bred there. Together they provide a detailed insight into the possibilities for walking at every level.' (The Keswick Reminder / August 2006) 'The book is an example of what a good guidebook should be, crammed with useful information. In addition to the routes, it describes the history, flora and fauna, weather, planning, safety, accommodation, etc. Though, it is all in one mountain area, the book correctly describes separately the Polish and Slovak Tatras. One needs separate bases for these; there are separate languages and currencies. This book is essential for anyone planning to walk in these mountains.' (Irish Mountain Log / Winter 2006) 'Written by Colin Saunders and Renata Narozna, the Cicerone guide to the High Tatras breaks the range into two logical areas, the Slovak and White Tatras and the Polish Tatras. Their knowledge of the range is encyclopaedic. Like all Cicerone guides, information and directions are clear and concise and contains a wealth of other information. I'm positive you'll find something to your taste in these wonderful mountains and enough information to get you there in this excellent guidebook.' (Walking World Ireland magazine / 2007 Annual)

Format: Vinyl Bound
Although this book covers the Polish as well as the Slovakian Tatras, we only visited Slovakia.

The information in this book is well laid out and gives accurate information on what to expect in the walks listed. As we are not what you could call "mountain goats" any longer, and can now only cope with less strenuous walks, we were able to easily identify all of the walks which suited our fitness level and ability.

The walks detailed in this book covered virtually all of the possibilities in the High Tatras, and when used with the appropriate map (purchased locally) were easy to identify.

The book could be improved by the addition of maps, but on balance the cost could be more expensive if this was the case, and given the size and weight of the existing publication it was easy to carry with you!

This book is thorough. It introduces us to a mountain region unspoiled by our normal experience of mountain regions. We trot around behind some railings or we take a usual chair lift. How wonderful that the Carpathians have remained unchanged. This book enables everyone to experience them in the "armchair".
Perhaps dvd's of the routes will one day be produced. I would purchase every single one. I was intrigued by the idea of going through a cave on one mountain route. The authors tell you the truth about the walks so you are prepared. I just loved every page of it. I am also glad to know about the terrain my ancestors knew so well before they were forced by circumstance to leave. Reading this book is a type of "going home". Thank you.

This book is essential and got me around the Tatras in Poland and Solvakia for a couple of weeks this summer. Was hard to get my head around the book at first whilst at home but figured it all out on the trails out there and was absolutely essential! We went without booking anything and book had most the info and transport options listed accurately that we needed. We even stayed at the Chalet shown on the front cover before climbing to the top of Rysy (highest peak achievable without hiring a guide). Well recommended and nice and small so doesn't take up too much room.

Really helpfull and handy book in preparing the trip. You'll need a detailed map on the routes when you'll start walking. The one provided is good enough for prepartion, including details on distance, time, hight meters of the different trackls
