Tatry/Výlety/Hike to Vychodna Vysoka from Tatranska Polianka
Challenging all-day hike with exposed sections. Starting point of the hike is in Tatranská Polianka where from we proceed in the direction of a mountain hotel Sliezsky dom. It’s up to us if we continue with the asphalt road or the forest path that cuts through the long winding road. From Sliezsky dom that offers us shelter and refreshment while admiring the picturesque tarn Velické pleso, we climb through a specific veil created by flowing water over a rocky edge called Večný dážď and into a part called Kvetnica. If we start early and with a little bit of luck, we can see chamois’ and murmots. We pass along a tarn Dlhé pleso. From our left side we are surrounded by the Gerlach massif that extends itself up until a saddleback Poľský hrebeň. Its upper part is exposed and secured with chains. From this point on it takes only 50 min. to the peak Východná Vysoká. The slightly climbing terrain is rocky and in the second half of the ascent turns into stone rubble. The rewards for our hard work are beautiful views of the valley Veľká Studená dolina and many peaks and summits of the High Tatras.
