LOMNICKE-SEDLO-VYSOKE-TATRY-WINTER

Walk on the roof of the Tatras at Lomnické sedlo (saddle) at the altitude of 2,190 metres. From the lower station in Tatranská Lomnica, a 4-person cable car operates to the intermediate station of Štart. From there, one can continue the trip with a new 15-person cable car to Skalnaté Pleso, which is the upper station but also an intermediate station when travelling to Lomnické sedlo (saddle). You can use a renewed and more comfortable black-silver chairlift with leather seats to get from Skalnaté Pleso to the saddle, where the cult Slovak film “Copper Tower” (1970) was shot.

 

Lomnické sedlo, which is located at the altitude of 2,190 metres, is a place with breathtaking views. To the east, there is a smooth hillside with the most attractive and steepest black ski slope in Slovakia. Popradská kotlina (basin) is a stone´s throw from there and one can even see distant peaks of the mountain range of Slovenské Rudohorie from there. You will get a completely different picture of the country on the opposite side dropping away to the deep valley of Malá Studená dolina, which is bordered by the sharp ridge of Prostredný hrebeň. From Lomnické sedlo, you can admire Slavkovský štít (peak) with its typical round summit silhouette.
