This is a mountain in the western part of the Západné(SK)/Zachodnie (PL) Tatry/West Tatra Mountains. The peak rises in the main ridge of the Western Tatras, between the summits of Banikov/Banówka and Spalena/Spalona. Pachoľa is shaped like a pyramid, the origin of the peak's name is not clear.

From the summit an interesting view opens up toward the west end of the Tatras and the Chocske Vrchy.

Getting There

Rohacska Dolina and Pachol`aRohačká Dolina

  • Rohačká Dolina starting point:
    From Poland, cross to Slovakia at the road toll at Sucha Hora, to reach Oravice and Zuberec. From Slovakia, reach Zuberec via Zilina and Dolný Kubín.

  • Jamnická or Jalovecka Dolina starting points:
    From Poland, very long way... from Krakow, prefer the border point at Chyżne. From Silesia, choose Korbielow or Rajcza/Novot. Reach Dolný Kubín and circumvent Tatras. From Slovakia, via Dolný Kubín and Liptovsky Mikulas.

Red Tape and Camping

From BanikovPachoľa (centre) and the westernmost peaks of the Tatras behind it.

You are in Tatra Mountains National Park.
In Slovakia, the trails are open from 15th June to the end of October.
You can't camp here, should walk only on marked trails.
No dogs, on open fire.

You can't go camping in the Tatras, the nearest campsites are in Habovka, Oravice and Pribilina. There are a few mountain huts: Ziarska Chata - in the Ziarska Dolina (Valley) and Tatliakova Chata and Zverovka in the Rohacska Dolina.


From AdamculaToward Pachoľa from NE

  • From the North: parking near Zverovka in the Rohacska Dolina (Valley), about 45 minutes along an asphalt road, at the junction called Razcestie pri Adamculi turn right and follow the yellow/blue marked trail, on the way you'll pass a nice waterfall (Rohacsky Vodopad). Keep to the yellow trail until you reach the saddle named Banikovske Sedlo (2040 m). From here take the red trail west, and soon you'll reach the top - 4 hours up

  • From the South: the starting point is the village of Jalovec: take the yellow trail up the Jalovecka Dolina, then turn right onto the blue trail leading up the valley called Parichvost, to Banikovske Sedlo - 4 hours

Both trails are not demanding, however, the latter makes for a rather arduous ascent.
From Pachoľa you can continue west along the main ridge, to the summits of Salatin, Brestova, and if you are strong enough even to Sivý Vrch.

here is a map you could include : Have you done Salatin, Konrad ? I think this is the most important missing mountain to add to Tatry Zachodnie

I'd like more links (working:)) and perhaps info that the origin of the name is not clear.

Children refers to the set of objects that logically fall under a given object. For example, the Aconcagua mountain page is a child of the 'Aconcagua Group' and the 'Seven Summits.' The Aconcagua mountain itself has many routes, photos, and trip reports as children.



Parents refers to a larger category under which an object falls. For example, theAconcagua mountain page has the 'Aconcagua Group' and the 'Seven Summits' asparents and is a parent itself to many routes, photos, and Trip Reports.
