Good starting point for approaching Szarpane Turnie is Popradski Staw Shelter at 1500 m. The shelter can be reached on foot from the train stop 'Popradske Pleso' (leave your car at parking there) through a good road marked blue. When you spend night in a shelter - you can reach the shelter by car and park it just by the shelter (please notify the shelter manager about it). To reach Szarpane Turnie go along Zmarzly Potok (Frozen Stream) - see details on the map (1.5 hour apprach from the shelter).
