Travel Forums Europe Advice on Tatra/Tatry Mountains hike/trek needed

royden has indicated that this thread is about Poland


I am thinking of heading up the tatra mountains for some solo trekking/hiking in late april (23rd onwards).

My main concern is, are most of the good trail open during that period and is it really dangerous in terms of avalanche and stuff to trek alone during that period? I am actually looking for at most moderate trails, without equipments and would very much prefer scenic treks.

I intend to trek from hut to hut in that region, right now the tentative plan is to fly to Krakow, travel to Zakopane, trek in the tatra region, and desend down in the slovakian side, probably Poprad? As for my trekking ability, so far I've only done Annapurna Circuit trek in Nepal.

Is there any other active english forums that have information on trekking around the tatra region?

Any form of help will be gladly appreciated,

You will have a great time, make sure to check out the many shops in that area.
I don't think you will be able to hunt, due to the rules in Poland, may want to check into this now, and see if you can get a permit for this.
You will love Poland, and plan on spending as much time as you can, since you can't do it all in just a few weeks.
