Malá Studená dolina

Malá Studená dolina is is a 4,5 km long, terraced valley, often visited by tourists. It has an old mining tradition (gold and copper mining until the mid-19th century). In the lower forested threshold is an attractive Obrovský vodopád (“Giant Waterfall”), which can be admired directly from the Tatra Magistrala (red trail ). The green trail enters the valley near Zamkovského chata. Above the dwarf-pine zone the valley is characterized by a large rock terrace (Veľký a Malý Svah). After passing the terrace along Žltá stena (“Yellow Wall”), that is attractive for the climbers, the trail reaches Téryho chata, built in 1899 near tarns Päť Spišských plies (“Five Spiš Tarns”). The dominant peaks lining the end of the valley are Prostredný hrot, Ľadový štít (the third highest in the High Tatras) and Lomnický štít (the second highest in the High Tatras). Above the chalet, the trail continues to the side valley of Dolinka pod Sedielkom, where you can choose to cross the saddle Priečne sedlo (yellow trail , secured by chains) to Veľká Studená dolina, or ascend (green trail ) along the highest Tatra tarn Modré pleso (2157 m) to a saddle Sedielko and further to a valley Javorova dolina.
