Račkova Valley is a well-known locality of the Western Tatras for tourists, and therefore it is also frequently visited in every season. It has a length of more than 5 kilometers and its beginning lies at an altitude of 960 meters above sea level.

The lower part of the valley is surrounded by spruce forest due to its low altitude. The upper part of the valley, also called Račkov Back, is significantly shorter, steeper and surrounded by grass and dwarf trees.

At the end of the valley, in the embrace of the Tatra peaks, there are Račkove Mountain Lakes. Their number also depends on the amount of water, but usually there are two - Nižné and Vyšné (Lower and Higher). In the spring, their shores abound with beautiful flowers and green grass.

However, a jewel of the Račkova Valley for all mountain hiking enthusiasts is the peak of 2173 meters above sea level called Klin. The summit itself is rugged, so it offers hiking where you will not only get sweaty but you will also see a number of enchanting panoramic views of the entire region.

The hike below this peak, across the Račkova Valley, is undemanding and very relaxing. You can also see many interesting plants and animals during it. And if you are very cautious, there is no problem to blunder on the marmot.
