Koprovský štít 2363m is located in the heart of the High Tatras. The views are of the surrounding peaks and valleys and one can feel like in the middle of a rocky wilderness. Thanks to the fact that the road is a turnoff to Rysy, where there is also a cottage of the same name, it is not so frequented. On the way I walk around the Great Hincov Lake, the largest lake in the Tatras.

Route description

Thanks to the accommodation at Popradský pleso, I leave in the morning following the blue sign. I cross the turnoff to Rysy and continue on serpentines to such an elevation that the road continues up to Hincovový pleso, which is the largest in the Tatras. After a long break, I go out to Koprovské sedlo, where serpentines are waiting for me on a steep hill. From the saddle, it looks like the top is within reach, but I'll walk along the ridge for a while before reaching the top point. The peak is not very big, but there aren't many people here either, so I can enjoy the landscape for a while. The descent is the same to the Poprad Ball. For more able tourists, it is possible to complete the route from Štrbské pleso, where there is a car park.
