Above the first rocky terrace next to Velické tarn, there stands the mountainous hotel Sliezsky dom, which is greatly visited by tourists. The green-marked path, which starts behind the tarn, rises pass the other edge – Večný dážď to the attractive part with meadows called Kvetnica with the vanishing tarn of the same name. The path fixed with chains rises pass Dlhé tarn in the closure of the valley up to the saddle Poľský ridge. There is possibility to go to Bielovodská valley, to Veľká Studená valley (through saddle Prielom – fixed with chains) or to the peak Východná Vysoká (2429.6 m) by yellow-marked path fixed with chains.
