The Western Tatras (Slovak: Zpadn Tatry; Polish: Tatry Zachodnie) are mountains in the Tatras, part of the Carpathian Mountains, located on the Polish-Slovak borders. The mountains border the High Tatras in the east, Podtatransk kotlina in the south, Choč Mountains in the west and Rw Podtatrzański (Slovak: Podtatransk brzda) in the north. The main ridge is 37 kilometers long and the mountain range contains 31 two-thousanders.

Western Tatras are the second highest mountain range both in Poland and Slovakia; its highest peak is Bystr at 2,248 meters.
