The High Tatras, the tallest peak being Gerlach, spiking to a summit at 2655 meters above sea level (m a.s.l.), with its 24 peaks higher than 2,500 m a.s.l. provide the only mountains with an Alpine character in the whole of the 1,200 km length of the Carpathian Mountain range. Although not as high or domineering as the Alps, this beautiful mountainous region offers a similar broad range of activities such as tourism, hiking, climbing, and skiing.
