Hike with amazing reward
Jul 2019
Hike is very simple at the beginning, but the top part is very difficult. I do not recommend to go with small children or dogs.
It's not the most difficult hike, but prepare to sweat a lot. It is necessary to prepare for a day tour. I recommend to leave the car at parking lot "Tri Studnicky". From there it takes about 3.5 hours. Ideally go as soon as possible, because around lunch is usually filled with people. The view from above is beautiful and the feeling that you climb up is unspeakable. People who are afraid of height or have poor physical condition may have a problem climbing up.

Hiking with satisfaction
Jun 2019
Hiking trail(green) from Tri studničky is not that easy, but worth it. Feelings at the top are amazing. Maybe the blue trail from Jamské pleso would be easier. I think both can be done by average person with no hiking experience.

An easy 2500 peak
May 2018 • Family
The curve peak. The Slovak Mattenhorn. Maybe the easiest 2500m peak of the world. There are 2 path to go, but the elevation is 1300 m. It is a full day walk, but I have seen there a 80, or more year old man. And a younger - he celebrated his 50, ran up with a glass of sparkling wine, drunk it with friends and ran down :-D He was absolutely local. Don't reccomended for families with little children, only if father can pick them up and take. The panorama is awesome. You will find the place on Slovak 10 and 20cent coins.

Very good but not my favourite in the region

You can start the hike at Strbske Pleso train station (on the south-west shore of the lake, behind Hotel Salisko) or from the parking “Tri Studnicky” (shorter but steeper). We opted for the second option and it was very physically demanding.It was 4 hours steep (always up) trail to the top, around 1000 m ascend. Half or more of the trail is not scenic as you hike through the forest with limited views which was a big drawback of this hike. Of course most of the hikes in High Tatras start in forests but this one was a bit too much. Last part of the trail is sort of scrambling but not too difficult. Views from the top are fantastic, but you need lots of efforts for it. If I had only one day to hike, I would choose Rysy instead of Krivan as that one is much more scenic and easier (especially from Slovak side).

it is worth to be there

Kriváň Mt. (2,494 m ) a stout peak in the western part of the High Tatras.
To get on the top takes 3-4 hours, it is worth to see mountains around - autumn is the best choice for adventure

Amazing hike to the top
Jul 2018 • Friends
We did this hike in 3.5 hour but its really hard, had to make many stops near the end as its really challenging to keep climbing on those rocks for so long.

Wow! That view!
Sep 2017 • Friends
If you're into climbing and you like a challenge, this is the peak for you. Taking approximately 4.5 hours to get to the top, be prepared for some steep inclines and scrambling near the top. If it's a clear day, the view is certainly more than impressive. Pack enough snacks as you'll need them to keep you going. A truly marvellous way to spend a day!

Difficult but worth it!
Sep 2017 • Solo
This climb is long and difficult but if you have a good weather the views are amazing. If the weather is not good ( rain of fog ) then its better to go somewhere else. Rocks can be slippery and there are no chains. I have seen a lot of kids up there but to be honest i don't think this is the best place to go with kids ( but of course this depends on their parents and their experiences ) There are 2 places where to start hike and they meet somewhere in the middle and then there is only one way. It can be quite busy in peak season. Enjoy!

Hill

It is first time, when I am writing a recension for mountain. It is nature, nature and nature. Every hill is unique, and Krivan is no exception. Nice, average, unique.

Best view on West and High Tatras
Jul 2017 • Family
One of the best view in High Tatras, i would say even better than from Gerlachovsky Stit or at least the same. Hike can start from "Tri Studnicky" (shorter but steep) or from "Strbske pleso" (longer but starting point is 200m higher). Count at least 6 hours for average hiker. Last hour is steep and difficult but fantastic views are just satisfaction. Good camping is in Tatranska Strba.
