How to get there
My family and our friends woke up in the morning at 4:30 am. At 5:00 a.m. we drove from Presov through Poprad approximately 80 km and finished our drive 16 km later in Stary Smokovec.
You can also take the road from Povazska Bystrica, Rozomberok, Liptovsky Mikulas to Stary Smokovec.
Our hike begun in Stary Smokovec (990 m) and continued on the path marked yellow and green over Sliezsky Dom (1,665 m) and Polsky Hreben (2,200 m). From Polsky Hreben we followed the yellow path to the summit of Vychodna Vysoka (2,429 m).
On the way back, we chose to follow a blue path over Prielom (2,288 m) and Zbojnicka Chata (1,960 m) where we stopped for warm food (halusky) and completed our trip again in Stary Smokovec, where we had left our car.

The weather in the Tatra Mountains is, as in any mountains, very unpredictable. Here you can see more rain than in any other area. We were told to feel extremely lucky to have had a full day of sun.
