The author of the story describes the mountain hiking in the Slovak mountains as “a less expensive alternative to the Alps” which offers “dramatic walks with 20 summits of over 2,500m in just 26km”.

“The soaring views of rocky peaks, lush valleys and sparkling lakes are reward for burning thigh muscles,” the story reads.

The author also recommends websites for planning the trips, accommodation and guided trips.

Listing Slovak tourist destinations in similar rankings is a great way to lure more tourists to Slovakia, said Marta Kučerová, head of the Slovak Tourist Board (SACR).

“The High Tatras offer unforgettable adventure not only in the form of spectacular tourist trips in summer, but also adrenaline fun on the ski slopes,” Kučerová said, as quoted by the SITA newswire. “The number of British tourists who came to Slovakia between January and October 2015 increased 40 percent year-on-year. More Brits may come this year also thanks to similar news.”
