Gpaul I like Tatras the most
. Mountains are like Alps but there are smaller and lower and there are no glaciers.
The Tatras form the central, highest and most beautiful section of the Carpatian mounitain range. They are ringed by four broad basins: Podhale, Orawa, Liptow and Spisz. The main Tatra ridge runs from west to east, about 51 kilometres as the crow files. In width, this whole chain is barely 18 km. It occupies an area of about 800 sq.km. The highest mountain in the Tatras is Gierlach (2654,4m), and there are dozens of other peaks rising to over 2000m. The Highest peak in the Polish Tatras is Rysy (2499,2m), but it's a border mtn. The highest polish peak is Kozi Wierch (2291,2m), whole mtn in Poland.
As regars type of landscape, geological structure and type of rock, the Tatras may be divided into three parts: the Western Tatras, the High Tatras and Bielskie Tatras. The most interesting part and the most frequented by tourists, is the High Tatras. One fifth of the entire Tatras area lies in Poland, valley of Rybi Potok, the most beautiful nook in the High Tatras, and the Dolina Koscieliska, the most lovely valley in the Western Tatras, are both situated in the Polish section of the Tatras.
The whole Polish Tatras area now constitues the Tatra National Park (TPN), whose equivalent on the Slovak side is the Tatransky Narodny Park(TANAP). They are covered by special regulations govering the behaviour of tourists in order to preserve the orginal fauna and flora of the Tatras.
The most popular parts of the Polish Tatras as follows: Morskie Oko, the most beautiful lake in Tatras, surrrounded by High peaks, Mt Kasprowy Wierch(1986,7m) reached by only high-mountain cable car in Poland. Kasprowy is skiing area with 2 ski lifts.The Picturesque Dolina Koscieliska valley with its karst forms and Mt Giewont (1894,5m) to towering over Zakopane. Zakopane is the town in the Tatras.
