I tried to catch a flight to the area but Krakow was too expensive for me so i decided to Fly to Budapest...from there i took a train yoo, the first town i came in too was Poprad (Poprad-tatry) in south of the tatry (Slovkian part), from there i took a cable train to Stary Smokovec which is a ski village, i made some hiking in the mountins and from there i went to Visoki Tatry which is also great place for hiking, i tryed to reach the highest pick (about 2600 meter), but it's was close temopraly because of the weather.
After a few days i took a bus to Lysa Polana which is a border control pass to Poland, there i made a small trip and than i took a bus too Zakopane, it's wonderful to come back to a place u already know, Zakopane has great local cheese (very cheep), in many differnet tastes, and the atmosphere is very calm.
I took a bus to Krakow to see the city and get preperd for the trip in Polish Tatry.
In Krakow i met my friend which was also my guider in the trip to the Tatry.
We came back to Zakopane buoght some food for the next days and took a bus to Kuznice (about 3-4 k"m south east), and from there started to climb, we took a map of the national park that shows about where is all the Hostels in Park.
The view was amazing but the weather wasn't we got stuck very often in the snow, and sometimes we stopped because of Snow storms, the Hostels are lovely and cost about 6USD.
We had a great time there, u can spend weeks there.
We climbed on mount Giwont, and some peak near and from there we conitinued to Mt Kraporvsky which has amazing view on the valley and some great frozen lakes (in summer they look much better when they r not frozen), we continue the trip in this area to the direction Mt Rysy which is the highest peak in Poland (2499m), but it was not possible because of to much snow.
I recommand to make this trip in the summer because of the weather and green views.
It's one of the most amazing parks i've seen and still not commercial area because not many tourists knows about the area.
Also don't miss the Rafting in Donjetz which is in area and is open from may to ocotber from what i understood.
