As one among the highest peaks found in the High Tatras, the Lomnický štít is one of the visited mountain peaks found along the High Tatras in Slovakia. The summit of this mountain peak is 2634 meters found above the sea level and it is connected to Tatranska Lominca by a cable car. It is also the second highest of mountain peaks found in the High Tatras, and the highest being Gerlachovsky stit.

This peak was scaled for the first time around the period 1760-1790 by a local shoemaker as well as an amateur miner Stefan Fabry. But the ascent that was recorded for the first time was scaled by Robert Townson, the English traveler during the year 1973. He measured the elevation pertaining to the peak which was a near-perfect measure that read 2633 meters. It was in the year 1891 that the first winter ascent was made.

Lomnický štít was also called as Dedo or the Grandpa in the past, and since the year 1940, the cable car which was considered to be very modern in the whole of Europe during that time helped tourists to reach the Lomnický štít. Visitors get allowed to stay for about 50 minutes at the peak, and in the month of May, the cable car system is usually closed for annual maintenance. Another alternate to scale the peak comes in the form of Lomnicky Saddle, which can be carried out only with the help of a mountain guide.
