My brother, Axe, will be in Europe later this month after leaving Sri Lanka where he has been working. He doesn't have much internet access so I'm trying to help him.
He wants to visit Krakow (our family is from the area historically) and then hike in the Tatras. Questions are:
Best way to get to Krakow via train--from Warsaw or?
A decent/safe hostel etc in Krakow to stay?
How to best get from Krakow to the Tatras to trek. (non technical climbs/scrambles)
Can he base out of a nearby town it the Tatras area to climb over several days? If so where?
Are any SP members interested in meeting up to informally guide and trek? (He'll cover fuel/food etc)
Thanks in advance!
