English topic High Tatras with children Hello, Me, my wife and two children (8 and 6 years old) are planning a four-day hike in the high Tatras at the end of July. Our plan for the first day was to go from Skalnate Pleso over Velka Svistovka to Zelenom Plese. But I'm worried for the descent where I read you have to slide down and hold on to chains. Does anyone have advice whether this hike is suitable with children or not? (We would then continue down to chata Plesnivek and Tatranska Kotlina which I think are much easier tracks.) Another option is to hike to Zamkovskeho chata (first day) and then up to Teryho chata (second day). That's a short distance, but again, I wonder if the final climb to Teryho might be too tough for the children. On flat ground they can easily walk 6 km. Thanks for any suggestions! 21/06/15 Pär Söderhjelm English Forum Nahlásiť adminom options: switch order of messages, last week only
Thanks to Lubo and Sona for your kind advice! We chose the hike to Teryho chata and had a wonderful time. Waterfall and views surely helped. The ascent from Zamka took around three hours so we also had time to explore the continuing path above Teryho chata in the afternoon. Upwards was actually easier than downwards for the children. 03/08/15 21:38 Pär Söderhjelm
Final stage towards Teryho chata is steep, however the path is very well maintained. There are plenty of places suitable for resting. Even a waterfall is there, which counts for children :-).

In case you need to make a decision between two routes, I would recommend the first one from the adults' point of view and the second one from children point of view.

Anyways, make sure to book huts in advance, late July is high season all huts are quite busy.

Should you need any further advice or tips, feel free to ask here :-). We will be glad to help out...

Enjoy your trip!

I think chains wouldn't be problem for children at that age, bud this trip is very long, 17 km. Look at this: mapy.hiking.sk/?hpid=L89Cl
Or, are you going to stay overnight at Chata pri Zelenom plese?

Final climb at Teryho chata is ok, no steep terrain. See some pictures here: hiking.sk/…/teryho_chata_s_dvojrocnym_drobcom.html

Have a nice hike :)
