Map with old hiking trail direction

Map with old hiking trail direction

Map with old yellow hiking trail direction - through the Furkotské saddle to Bystrý priechod (2370m) - marked here as Bystré sedlo 2314 m, just dozens of meters of walk-up to the summit of Furkotský štít (2405 m). Another trail on this map has been closed since 1970s - red trail ends now at the shore of the Temnosmrečinské pleso. Communists couldn't allow hikers to cross the border with our Warsaw pact partner - Poland;. The saddle Chalubinského brána (2019 m), highest point of the trail, is on the slovak-polish border. This map is the part of the climbing map of High Tatras from author Kroutil, Prague 1975. Only for non-commercial use. Check this site for conditions of use and for other climbing maps:

Looks like an

extensive map. The trail in red passing
at the shore of the body of water is open
now??? I'm very happy that you have the
country of Poland as a neighbor. From what
I have experienced, the Polish are a very
progressive, intellegent and peaceful people.

Re: Looks like an

The red trail is open now, but ends at the shore of the tarn. Polish are very pleasant neigbours as well as other people of good will. Cheers Tomas :)

Re: Yes

Good will is GOOD to have in this world.
Of course, everybody makes mistakes. For
example, take a look at the 52-year-old
man who was traveling up to the summit rim
of Washington state's Mt. Saint Helens
(volcano) on his gas-powered snow machine.
He got off to look into the depths of the
volcano's crater, and ended up falling
1,800-feet into it! I wonder if he NOW is
more in TUNE with the phrase: "Gravity is
a harsh mistress!" Take care, Tommy!

Re: Yes

Sad story.. I saw the page and photos of Mt. Saint Helens. It looks quite difficult (extreme weather conditions). Another man died last week in High Tatras on slope of Satan, when snowboarding the long, famous and dangerous Cerveny zlab chute. He was a perfect climber... And couple of weeks ago another man died on the bottom of the valley Mala Studena dolina (Between Prostredny hrot, Ladovy stit, Baranie rohy and Lomnicky stit - all have SP pages). He fall into the Obrovsky waterfall. He probably left the trail to boulder some rock and slid on wet or ice covered rock, because falling from the bridge of hiking trail is hardly possible. Look here for summer view of the bridge with the hiking trail. This is the view of the waterfall from the trail bridge. The mounain rescue officials stated, that he fell 40 meters and was dead immediately, despite being accompanied by a doctor, who took him off the water in a minute and uselessly tried to save him. Also you take care, we are never safe in mountains, Larry.

Re: maps

Hi Eric, I included the link to the page with other samples of maps of Tatras. Maps you found on the page of my climbing club include only non-marked trails to all major High Tatras summits. Those maps are from a book, a mountain guide. These maps don't include our trail, because they don't include marked trails. Cheers, Tomas :)
