Zbojnícka chata

Zbojnícka chata is 1960 AMSL (moderate tour), it is in Veľká studená dolina and it was established in 1907. Slovaks call it Zbojnička.

In the past, there were a lot of miners and goldrushers here. The first hiker who visited the chalet was probably Gregor František Berzevici, the mountain guide.

The name of the chalet is Zbojnícka (means brigand or bandit) and it is because of poachers that slept here in the past. Unfortunately, fire damaged the chalet in 1998.

Nowadays you are able to accomodate in it, may 16 people. Food is carried by sherpas and prepared on place. Toilets are outside the chalet.
