We went back home to Slovakia for couple of days. We brought our bikes with us, since there are some very nice trials and tracks in Velka Fatra. Couple of friends and us chose a crest trail starting at Martinske Hole. Some parts of this track have been used for SPEN II (Slovakian Enduro National Cup) this summer, therefore the trials have been cleaned and well prepared. [ Read More... ]

Before we leave Alaudin lakes to explore Mutnoe lake, I should mention how we packed as I received often a question how heavy were our backpacks, what was inside, etc. This article will describe the longest hike we did without any civilization (no tea room or any opportunity to buy supplies). This part was supposed to take 15 days. The next stop where we could buy food or beverage would be in Iskanderkul. You would normally go via Kaznok pass to get to Iskanderkul from Alaudin lakes. As I recall it is 2-3 days hike but we wanted to visit Big Allo lake and prolong the hike via some saddles. Besides food, we had 2 tents with us. 4 of us were sharing one (Stefan most of the time bivac outside) and Ivana one for herself. 2 ropes (20 and 30 meters in length), full glacier equipment (the heaviest part of our backpacks). Each one of us had one gas canister. [ Read More... ]
