A real Tatra mountain
Sep 2020
An altitude of 1894m. in the Tatras is high enough to earn the title of a real mountain. Moreover Giewont has a rocky summit and the last part (some 20m) you have to scramble over rocks adding to the experience of climbing a genuine peak. Still the overall hike to Giewont is very much doable for most people who are in good health and have a reasonable physical condition. Perhaps for this reason the hike up to Giewont is very popular.

The sign for the blue marked route to Giewont at Kuznice reads 3.15 (three hours and fifteen minutes). According to Google the distance of the trail is 5.7 km. Elevation difference just under 900m. I did the hike twice during bad weather when there were hardly any people. Both times I was alone on the summit, but the view was limited. To go down I would recommend the red marked trail through the beautiful Strazyska valley.

Fantastic landscape but very crowded on season

The view is amazing, but you have to be on the peak at sunrise or sunset, because it's very popular and crowded on season and weekends. The last attack on a peak is with chains and it's likely to be congested.

Hike 1894m

Rocky, slippery but worth it! Few chains on the very top, but not that hard even if you are a bit scared of heights.

Great view

We got lucky that it wasnt a crowded day . We made the hike up and got the treat of the fantastic views at the cross. Coming down wasn't as easy as it got slippery but that is to be expected.

Awesome

Very nice hike to the top would recommend visiting. The only downside is the waiting line to get to the top. But once you there really worth the hike. Recommend walking all the way up there from kuznice for the full experience. Bring enough water and DON'T go up there if there's bad weather coming.

Beautiful views from the top

Lovely views....make sure you get the cable car to take you to the top, to save you 3 hours!...also pay the additional £10 or so to get the ticket that allows you to jump the queue, rather than queue up for an hour or 2 to get on it!

Probably most famous peak on polish side
Jun 2019 • Couples
This would be first mountain to see when entering the town of Zakopane, since it faces directly the city from the south.
Few trails lead to the top, it takes all day long to reach the top and come back (for an average trekker). Lots (I mean, freaking lot) of people approach the peak on a daily basis during summer season and since the trail in rather narrow, queues are quite common. There is a big iron cross on top, which is a magnet for thunders during storms, it is dangerous area to be at when it happens, so stay clear from this place in a event of a rainstorm.

Giewont
Jul 2019 • Friends
Gwieont is well worth a climb. The last few hundred meters require scrambling and using a metal chain to help yourself up but the views are incredible. Took us 1hr 45 to summit but we were going at a strong pace. Allow yourself plenty of time and take ample food and drinks as there is only 2 places to stop for supplies.
