Vysny Kubin Off The Beaten Path: 14 reviews and 14 photos

Vysni and Dolny Kubin are located in a valley surrounded by a few ranges of mountains. The closest mountains are located south-east and called Chocske Vrchy with the highest summit of Velky Choc (1611 m = 5285 ft).
Buy detailed (very detailed) map of Chocske Vrhy in Dolny Kubin and choose one of numerous mountain trails.

When I was a student I climbed up to Velky Choc (starting from Dolny Kubin) once and I remember steep, tiring trail, amazing views from the top and... a lot of wild strawberries. I was lucky to see the highest Slovak and Polish mountain range called the Tatra Mountains (Gerlah summit - 2654 m = 8707 ft) placed approx. 40 km (25 mi) northeast. It was in summer time (June or July). Notice that higher parts of mountains are often covered by fog even in summer.
