About 4 hour climb to the top of the mountain of Kasprowy Wierch (1987m) and a cable car ride down to Zakopane Kuznice . A very enjoyable walk, steep climb in places and quite tiring but otherwise not too difficult. Great views and sense of achievement are your rewards. Mountain hut Murowaniec at Hala Gasienicowa is a great place for lunch as is the restaurant at the cable car station on Kasprowy Wierch.
The walk starts at the entrance to Tatra National Park on Kasprowicza Street in Zakopane, on the left hand side of the road towards Kuznice. Follow the green route to Nosal (1209m), quite steep but very enjoyable with amazing views of Zakopane and Tatra's peaks. From Nosal continue along the same green route towards Kuznice, when it crosses with the blue route take a blue one to Hala Gasienicowa. This is 1h 30' of a tiring walk so lunch at Murowaniec shelter (1500m) is a good idea.
The last part of the climb is 1h 20' from Hala Gasienicowa to Kasprowy Wierch following a yellow route. The path is wide but very rocky. From the top of Kasprowy Wierch (1987m) you can see Tatra's peaks on both Polish and Czech side. It does feel like you are on the top of the world.
Coming down to Kuznice by cable car offers an exciting and much less tiring end to the walk. From Kuznice you can reach the centre of Zakopane by minibus, horse carriage or by foot (about 1 hour) if you have any energy left.
