Geocache Description:


Svištia keška

english

Keška pre všetkých zdatných turistov na vrchole Ďumbiera dostala meno po svišťovi vrchovskom tatranskom - typickom obyvateľovi tunajších strání. Môžete ho sem-tam zahliadnuť, ako sa náhle zjaví, prenikavo hvizdne a zase zmizne medzi skalami. Občas sa tu dajú zbadať aj kamzíky, ale tie majú radšej oblasť okolo Derešov.

Na vrchol a ku keške sa dostaneš z Jasnej alebo zo Srdiečka výstupom (alebo lanovkou) na Chopok. Po hrnčeku legendárneho čaju na Kamienke sa vydaj po červenej na Ďumbier. Potrvá ti to asi 2 hodiny. Tých možností máš ale oveľa viac, pomôže ti turistická mapa. Ak bude priať počasie, otvoria sa Ti nádherné výhľady na všetky svetové strany.

Geocache hľadaj po výstupe na vrchol s dôverou v GPS, zameraná je presne. Pozor, nebude to jednoduché - vhodných úkrytov je veľa a muklov okolo často ešte viac!

Vrchol Ďumbiera je dostupný celoročne, no kešku len veľmi ťažko nájdete pod často zamrznutou a hrubou snehovou prikrývkou. V Národnom parku Nízke Tatry sa pohybujte len po vyznačených turistických trasách.

Prajem Vám slnečný deň a výbornú dohľadnosť!

Marmot cache

Mountain-top geocache on the highest summit of Low Tatras - Ďumbier. Its name was given after typical Low Tatras inhabitant - Marmota marmota latirostris, that you can rarely see whistling on the hillsides and suddenly disappearing in between the rocks.

Low Tatras, second highest mountains in Slovakia are towering with their massifs and peaks in about 80km long, 30km wide east-to-west line. In its central part is highpoint - peak of Ďumbier (2043m/6705ft ASL). Check hiking map of the area to plan your hike to the summit. You have an option to start your climb in village Jasná (northern side) or Srdiečko (southern side) and get at first on the top of Chopok peak.

If you wish to save your time and energy for further roof-top hike, you can use cableway (for about 10 Euro return ticket). From Chopok, follow the red marked hiking footpath to Ďumbier (about 2 hours) and enjoy beautiful panoramic sceneries all around you.

After you'll reach the summit, look for the geocache believing your GPS receiver. Cache is hidden at coordinates, measured precisely.

No special equipment is needed, just proper shoes and clothing. Pay attention on changing weather conditions. Summit of Ďumbier is accessible all year long, but cache use to be covered by thick snow during winter. Most likely you will not be able to dig it out between November and May. In National Park Low Tatras it is allowed to use marked hiking paths only.

I wish you a sunny weather and excellent views!
