After we get down from trek, we will go for lunch and then you will visit Belianska Cave that is located in the territory of the Tatra National Park. The cave is 1,752 m long, and some of its parts were known by gold-miners already in the 18th century. There are 8 species of bats living in the cave, now.

Day 5: Malý Ľadový štít 2602m (7 hrs)

Day 6: Slovak Paradise (5 hrs) + Aqua City Poprad
Beautiful trek in real paradise. Suchá Belá valley and Prielom Hornádu (canyon) gives a bit different point of view of Slovak nature beauty.
