From the meeting point in Zakopane we transfer to the starting point of the hike: Koscieliska valley (931 m). Then we walk to the Ornak mountain hut (1115 m). We have lunch and visit some limestone caves. Overnight in the hut.
From the mountain hut we go to the Temniak hill (2090 m), on the main ridge of the Tatras. We will walk towards the Kasprow hill (1987 m), then descend to the Murowianec hut (1510 m), where we spend the night.
From the mountain hut we hike up to the Zawrat saddle (2159 m), to the beginning of the Eagles Path. This is the most beautiful and picturesque section of the hiking trip. It’s however very difficult and long. (It’s possible to take a shortcut to the next hut.) Then we descend from the Krzyzne saddle (2144 m) to the hut by the 5 Polish lakes (1670 m), where we sleep.
From the hut to go to the Morskie oko mountain lake (1400 m). Then we go up to the highest Polish peak: Rysy (2599 m). From the summit we descend to the Slovakian hut under the summit of Rysy (2250 m), where we spend the night.
In the final day, we will walk down by two very beautiful valleys: Ťažka valley and Bielovodska valley.
From the hut, we go up to the Vaha saddle (2400 m), then down to Ťažka valley around 2 lakes (Zamrznute pleso and Ťažke pleso) and to Bielovodska valley. The latter is the longest valley on the Slovak High Tatras. We end the walk in Lysa Polana (980 m), at the border between Slovakia and Poland. Finally, transfer in public minibus back to Zakopane

I'm a UIMLA mountain leader and national tourist guide (for cultural and historical heritage trips).
I was born in Poprad in 1969. From my early childhood, I often looked out my bedroom window into the distance of the picturesque High Tatras, which fascinated me even then. In high school I started going with my friends to a small climbing "expedition" on the surrounding rocks, and later to the High Tatras. Mostly I went with a friend whose father was a member of the Mountain Rescue Service. During my studies at Comenius University in Bratislava, I loved coming back to the mountains.
In 1999 I started actively volunteering paramedic of the Tatra Mountain Rescue Service, and then I was hired there.
Precisely because of my relationship with the mountains I began working as a tourist guide with a focus on mountain areas.
Since 1998 I accompany tourists from around the world to the mountains and surrounding towns.
In 2011 I got certified as mountain leader.
Besides, I have been working as a member of the Council of the Slovak Association of mountain Leaders since it was established in 2011.
