The area is also rich in wildlife, home to rarely spotted lynx, golden eagles and brown bear. Slovakia claims the tallest peak on the range, Gerlachovský štít measuring in at 2655m, which sits within the High Tatras range. The area is ideal for hiking with trails for all fitness levels affording awe-inspiring panoramic vistas.
