I recommend hiking in September/October, the weather is stable. The trek is easier from Slovak part than from Polish, both parts are nice. I have to remark on Tatras sherpas you can meet, they are the last in Europe.

We climbed in July from the Polish side and descended on the Slovakian so we could enjoy both routes and had a good comparison. The Polish is the more challanging one with more steep parts and chains, so it's good I went there. Unfortunately, there...More
