There are lots of hiking possibilities for hiking in the High Tatras, but this hike is just my most favourite. During one day you will see 3 tarns, walk beautiful hiking trails at the foot of the high summits with the views of the valleys, ascend to 2 000 meters high peak and eat lunch at the shore of a tarn surrounded by the monumental peaks.

You can ease the difficulty of the hike. Just take the cable car in Tatranska Lomnica to reach Skalnate pleso as we did. It will safe a lot of energy, that you will need later that day. You can also start to walk by the green trail from Tatranska Lomnica to Skalnate pleso and afterwards follow the red trail to Zelene pleso. From there walk the yellow trail to Kezmarska Biela voda to get back. You will have to wait for a bus to get back to Tatranska Lomnica or to call a taxi.

There are no more words needed. Just look at all the pictures below.

If you would like to walk this trail on your own, contact me for more information if needed.

This part of the descend was a little bit more adventurous. You have to use the chains while going down.
