Climbing Ganek and Rumanov Peaks

Ganek is located above three valleys – Rumanova, Czech, and Kacacia. Mountain guide leads the climb up an exposed south-east ridge and the ascent ends with the most beautiful section – Ganek Gallery.

It is possible to “run up” on the nearby Rumanov Peak on the way down, this depends on time available and current weather conditions.

Our guides recommend to spend the night before the ascent at the Lodge at Popradske Lake due to early start.

There are spectacular views from the summit of Ganek towards Ladovy Peak, Vysoka, and down on some seldom visited north valleys.
