Visitors to the Tatras do not have to climb the highest peaks to get a wonderful view of the mountains.

  • Length: 19.6 kilometres
  • Duration: 6:15 hours (plus some time for breaks)
  • Total elevation: 850 metres

If you want to see how the Belianske Tatras gradually meet with the High Tatras, and are curious about how the observatory on the Lomnický Štít peak looks from a different angle, be sure to take a hike from Tatranská Kotlina. Follow the blue sign to the Šumivý Prameň crossroad and then the green sign to Chata Plesnivec chalet.

Then continue following the green sign to Veľké Biele Pleso lake and then the red sign to Chata pri Zelenom Plese chalet. From there, take the yellow sign to the car park where you can take the bus back to Tatranská Kotlina or elsewhere.

The hike is a bit long, but it is quite easy and accompanied by some magnificent views. And do not forget to stop at the mountain chalets and get something to eat or drink.
