The cableway used by many tourists will undergo the necessary technical inspection. Therefore, it will only operate on weekends. It will not be possible to use it during the week.
Autumn is not only a perfect time to go to the mountains, but also the time when the local infrastructure is improved. There are no crowds on the trails at this time, and the weather conditions are favorable for robots. It is therefore not surprising that at this moment, for example, the renovation of one of the trails to Babia Góra is planned, which will not be open to tourists until October 28. Fortunately, tourists have the opportunity to use other routes, which allow you to climb Diablak in about 2 hours and enjoy extraordinary views from its peak, as well as excellent impressions along the way.
However, this is not the end of the difficulties. It turns out that on October 16, the technical inspection of one of the cable cars in the Silesian Beskids began. We are talking about a popular tourist attraction thanks to which you can get to Czantoria. Unfortunately, this work will take longer.
