4. Zakopane - Zdiar (37km)

Today is the most challenging part of our cycling. From Zakopane we will climb up to Tatranska Javorina border crossing. It will be quiet road, but up the hill mostly, so we might get off the bikes here and walk.

After hard day yesterday, today will be more relaxing day. Only 20 km to Tatranska Lomnica. Follow the main road from Zdiar to Tatranska Kotlina. We have a chance to explore Belianska jaskyna cave in Tatrasnka Kotlina. The Belianska Cave belongs among the most visited show caves in Slovakia. Except for bizarre rocky shapes, it is known by rich occurrence of calcite fills. Though the interest in natural attractions of the cave have been persisting for 125 years, the rules of its forming are not entirely clear by now. If you dont want to explore the cave we can carry on to Kezmarske Zlaby, Tatranske Matliare and Tatranska Lomnica. Tatranska Lomnica is one of the most famous Tatras settlements. The main attraction which we highly recommed is cable car to Lomnicky Stit, 2625 m. It is one of the highest peaks in Slovakia.
