The majestic peaks of the High Tatras are a must-see in Slovakia, stretching through Tatra National Park, across the northern part of the country in the Carpathian Mountains near Poland. The mountains, valleys, and lakes of the Tatras offer innumerable opportunities for hiking, cycling, skiing, swimming, river rafting, and relaxing in a pristine natural environment. Small but increasingly popular resorts in the area include Strbské Pleso, Smokovce, and Tatranská Lomnica. There are scenic cable cars and funiculars scattered about, including those at Lomnický Stít and Hrebienok.
