Ascent and Climbing Ostrva Needle

The ascent starts at Popradske Lake, from where it continues to a pass under Ostrva and then down a little to the Needle. The whole ascent and actual climb are not very difficult and therefore we recommend it to all adventurous mountain hikers.

Ostrva Needle (Ihla v Ostrve) is special in that you can take beautiful photos at its top with incredible shots of the surrounding peaks and valleys.
