Core mountain massif is composed of granite and crystalline rocks, formed in the Palaeozoic. Roháče is a very popular destination for mountain lovers. Excellent snow conditions mean that the mountain is much visited in winter, but there are lots of tourist paths you can hike during summer as well.

    I’m from this part of Slovakia. The best place for stay here is the small village Huty, where you can stay in the historical wooden house!

    This region reminds me about my vacation in Zakopane in neighbouring country Poland in 1999. Unforgettable times with my Polish friends Ewa and Marek from Warsawa. Greetings from Brussels. George
