The main beauty of this peak is that there might be no crowd on the top which is /to be honest/ sometimes rare according to High Tatras's peaks! There is always silence and peace on the top! But during getting there you may meet a lot of people at Polsky Hreben (2200m).

The routes are not hard for people who know the conditions of high mountains!

There is a beautiful view on the whole High Tatras from the summit.

Getting There

You can get to the High Tatras by car by bus by train or even by plane. The main center of the tourist atractions in the High Tatras is Poprad. The city of Poprad is situated at the south-east side of the High Tatras not far from the smaller villages in the mountains!

You can get there by plane from Bratislava (Sk), Prague (Cz), and from Viena (At), wich are the closest airports to Poprad National Airport. Unfortunatelly for the hungarian tourists there aren't any planes from Hungary!

You can reach Poprad by train or by bus from most of the bigger cities of the neighbouring countries and Slovakia! Thanks God trains and buses are also comeing from Hungary!

For helping the tourist who come from Hungary:
The trains leave from Budapest, Keleti International Railway Station a few times a day! For more information you might visit the website of the Hungarian National Railways (MÁV)!
The buses come from Budapest, Népliget International Bus Station also a few times a day. The website is www.volan.hu!

You can also go by car from all over Europe!

From Poprad there is a train to all the villages in the High Tatras: Strbské Pleso (1355m), Stary Smokovec (1010m), Tatranská Lomnica (850m), Tatranská Polianka (1005m) and there is a bus to Podbanské (950m). The best way to get to the base of the mountain is to go to Tatranská Polianka! The train goes to Stary Smokovec and there you have to change train and leave to Strbské Pleso. Tatranská Polianka is the fourth stop! The tickets are not expensive!
You can also start climbing from Stary Smokovec but it is a bit longer except if you make a circle and finish your route at Tatranská Polianka or the opposite way (start at Tatranská Polianka and finish at Stary Smokovec).

Red Tape

There are no route fees and summit fees but you might pay at some places for the parking if you go by car.

The routes are closed from the 1st of November to the 15th of June!

Wildlife rules are to keep the mountains as clean as possible and be in silence as the mountains do not make any noise to disturb you! You must not collect anything from nature, you might not take off the signed routes, and do not make fire or put up a tent inside the National Park!

When To Climb

You can climb in every time of the year! But from the 1st of November to the 15th of June you need a mountain guide or a notice from the head of the Tatra National Parks /TANAP-Tatranské Narodny Park/ that you are alloved to climb in the winter, it's dangerous time because of the snow avalanches.

In the winter you might have crampons, ice axes, ropes beside worm clothes!!!
