Alpine chalets

Tourist trails in the High Tatras will take you to 13 alpine chalets, which offer breathtaking views of beautiful peaks, large valleys or sky blue tarns.

 

The highest located chalet in the Tatras is the Chalet under Mt. Rysy. It is located at the altitude of 2,250 m and is accessible from Štrbské Pleso along a marked trail. The ascent takes 3.5 hrs. The chalet has an interesting history. It had to face various natural catastrophes and other problems. It is closed in the winter.

The second highest located chalet is Téry´s chalet, at the altitude of 2,015 m. It can be found in Malá Studená dolina (valley) near the tarns of Päť Spišských plies. It was named after Edmund Téry, a “doctor of the poor” from Banská Štiavnica, who played a significant role in the development of tourism in the Tatras and was the first to climb the peaks of Prostredný hrot and Pyšný štít. The area near the chalet is full of saddles with tourist trails and the terrain is ideal for climbing, ski touring or relaxation near the tarns.

Bilík´s chalet (1,255 m above sea level) is located close to Hrebienok. It was built in the area where a complex of Studenovodské Spas with the so called Ružena´s chalet and a tourist hotel had been located before.

Chalet at Zelené pleso (tarn), or former “Brnčala´s chalet” (1,551 m above sea level) is popular with tourists, cyclists, climbers and skiers due to excellent terrain conditions. Until 1950, the chalet was named after Albert Brnčala, professor of physical education and climbing instructor, who died under Jastrabie sedlo (saddle) in Malá Zmrzlá dolina (valley).

Chalet at Popradské pleso (tarn) (1,500 m above sea level) is located in a beautiful environment of Mengusovská dolina (valley), on the northern bank of Popradské pleso. It is a close neighbour of Majláth´s chalet. Both chalets have a long history, the first hostel was built here in 1879 already.

Chalet under Mt. Solisko located on the southern slope of Mt. Predné Solisko is the youngest alpine chalet in the High Tatras, located at the altitude of 1,840 m. It was built along with a chairlift that leads from Štrbské Pleso to Solisko and can be found near its upper station.

Skalnatá chalet (1,751 m above sea level) was made of stone before. Nowadays, it is managed by Ladislav Kulanga, a popular sherpa and holder of several records in carrying goods to alpine chalets (Zbojnícka chalet - 141 kg, Téry´s chalet – 151 kg, Zamkovský´s chalet – 207.5 kg, from Tatranská Lomnica to Skalnatá chalet - 187 kg).

Mountain hotel Sliezsky dom (1,670 m above sea level) is located at the beginning of Velická dolina (valley), where a former mountain chalet had been built in 1871. However, it burnt down in 1962. The present mountain hotel was built in 1968.

Zbojnícka chalet (1,960 m above sea level) is an alpine chalet located in the upper part of Veľká Studená dolina (valley), hidden behind the walls of Zbojnícky chrbát. The name of the former hunter´s chalet reminds of poachers that would cross the valley in the past. Nowadays, it is very popular with tourists.

The oldest Tatra chalet, Reiner´s chalet, was used as a storage room and occasional hostel after the nearby Kamzík hotel had been built. The chalet was renewed in 1998. Inside, there is a small exposition depicting the past and present of mountain sherpas in the Tatras. And a collection of old climbing equipment and old skis that were used by our forefathers.

Zamkovský´s chalet (1,475 m above sea level) is a cosy, alpine chalet located under the upper forest line, in the lower part of Malá Studená dolina (valley). It was built in 1942–1943 as a private chalet of Štefan Zamkovský, a climber. After the nationalisation of 1950´s, it was taken under state ownership and returned to Zamkovský´s descendants only in 1989.

Plesnivec Chalet (1,290 m above sea level) is the only object in the Belianske Tatra Mountains offering accommodation. It is located at the end of Dolina Siedmich prameňov (valley), on the south-eastern slope of Bujačí vrch (hill). After WWII, it served the tourism and after 1955, the Tatra National Park as a research station. Since 1997, it has been used as a public chalet again.
