Our journey starts in Strbske pleso (1355m), the highest positioned settlement in Slovakia. If you arrive by train, you can follow the path from train station to hotel FIS in Mlynecka Dolina. You will walk alongside the post office. After the small bridge for cross-country ski, turn left to a path to Strbske pleso. Following the path, you will reach the crossroad, where you turn to a blue-marked hiking trail, which is rising to a steep slope. You will pass ski jump turned to Mlynecka dolina. Already now you can see the beautiful scenery behind the sparse forest. From the ski jump, hiking trail follows the ski lift above the ski slope of Interski. The chairlift is on your right. Through the mountain pine, you will reach the main ski slope below Solisko. You will follow this path up to the top station of the cable car. Chalet under the Solisko (1840m) is the only opportunity for a small refreshment.
