Trips - Giewont

This route is midium long but with rocky steep uphill parts. You can also take cable car up to the top.

The trail starts in Kuźnice, where historic mansion-palace buildings together with a small park can be found. To go up to the top of Kasprowy Wierch we can take the green trail or the cable car. The cable car ride is divided into two parts: from Kuźnice (1027 m above see level) up to Myślenickie Turnie (1352 m) and from there to the top (1959 m). By cable car it takes only 25 min to go up. In the upper station there is a restaurant, bar and mountain rescue team spot (TOPR). From the view terrace you can enjoy the extraordinary view on the Tatras on both sides of the border.

Above the upper station you find also the meteorology observatory build in 1936-37. This small building is of the highest location in the country.

When being on the top you can admire the panoramic view on the West Tatras (with Giewont in the front), the High Tatras (with Świnica pick dominating), and down there the Podhale region enclosed by ranges of Beskidy, Gorce i Pieniny. From the top of Kasprowy Wierch you can take a hike to Świnica, Giewont, or start walking back downhill by yellow trail towards Gąsienicowa Valley and later on back to Kuźnice.
