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 lakes, 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 lake surrounded by the monumental peaks.

There are no more words needed. Just look at all the pictures below. At the end of the post you can also find the route of this hike with the basic information about the hike.

If you would like to walk this trail on your own I could help you to organize your vacation in Slovakia.

Probably the most beautiful view you can get during the hike

The starting point of the hike – Skalnate pleso. We took the cable car to reach the Skalnate pleso from the village of Tatranska Lomnica. The cable car in the picture is heading to the peak Lomnicky stit, which is the 2nd highest peak of Slovakia.

The view at the lake on the other day
This part of the descend was a little bit more adventurous. You have to use the chains while going down.
It was the beginning of June, but there was still snow scattered everywhere.
We ate the lunch at the terrace and we didn´t want to leave.
Look back at the Kežmarský štít. We had an amazing time that day.
