Conquering Lomnicky Peak, High Tatras

Published June 27th, 2012

The most popular and most famous peak of the High Tatras, Slovakia. The triangular top of the peak (high above the surrounding land) is connected to three ridges. The north-western ridge joins the main ridge of the High Tatras passing Pyšný and Baranie Saddle. In the north-east direction it is followed by a crotch passing the Kežmarský and Malý (Small) Kežmarský Peak. The third ridge - Lomnický Ridge, passes Lomnické Saddle in the south, south-east of the Lomnický Peak. In past it was called "Granddad" and seemed to be the highest one. In the 18-th century malachyte and silver was mined on its northern slopes by four generations of the Fábry family in hope that they would find gold.
