Photographer's Note

The picture illustrates some hikers on Tatranska Magistrala: a red-marked trail which crosses the Tatras from east to west, starting at Velke Biele pleso in the east, and continuing beyond the borders of the High Tatras map in the west. This is one of the most popular trails and, if it is your first trip, any part of this trail would be an excellent place to start. It would take about 15 to 16 hours to walk from Velke Biele pleso to the town of Podbanske in the western Tatras (or the other way round), but there are six mountain huts along the way so theres no need to do it in one go. The most spectacular parts of the Magistrala are between Skalnata chata at the cable car-station and Chata pri Zelenom plese at Zelene lake (2 hours 45 minutes); and between the Sliezsky dom mountain hotel and Chata pri Popradskom plese (3 hours 30 minutes), though the zigzaggy trail directly east of Popradske lake is also the hardest part of the red trail.
