Ascent to Kościelec (High Tatras)


Hiking tour from Kuźnice (1011 meters AMSL) to Kościelec (2155 meters AMSL) via Schronisko Murowaniec (1500 meters AMSL).

Kościelec is a mountain in the Polish part of the High Tatras mountain range.




Kuźnice can be reached by bus from Zakopane.

Crampons and an Ice Axe are mandatory equipment items in wintry conditions (checking the avalanche reports beforehand should be a matter of course). I would also recommend wearing a helmet.

With snow obstructing the way, you need roughly about one and a half hours from Karb (“Gap”, 1853 meters) to the peak.
