In the northern part of our beautiful country, along the national border of the Republic of Poland, there is the Pieniny National Park, which is characterized by a very aesthetic landscape appearance with a wealth of natural beauties. Its highest point is the rocky hill Vysoké Skalky (High Rocks) lying between hills of Šľachovky (899 m) and Vysoká (1 013 m).

Vysoké Skalky is one of the most popular and sought-after localities of Pieniny, thanks to its good accessibility, not so demanding ascent, although in the end you will find a rugged, rocky terrain, which is also secured by ladders and chains under the top rock platform, and a wide-range view, especially of the peaks of Pieniny, not only in the Slovak part, but also in the Polish part of the territory.

In the immediate vicinity of the Skalky Hill, there is also Kýčera Hill and whitish limestone rocks Šurdákova and Fridrikova skala, which you can visit on your hike. There are several possibilities to climb the Vysoké skalky. The starting points on the Slovak side are especially the villages Stráňany (about 4 km from Stráňanské Saddle), Litmanová (about 10km), Veľký Lipník, or Lesnica.
