Down from the confluence of the Malý Studený potok and Vel'ký Studený potok (Small Cold Brook and Large Cold Brook), a complex of smaller and larger waterfalls in the direction of the flow is situated, for which a summary term Studenovodské vodopády (Cold Water Waterfalls) is used. At the beginning of the Cold Brook flow, there is the Small Waterfall (1276 above the sea level) which is 18 meters high. Below the Small Waterfall, there is the 5 m high Hidden Waterfall and after it follows the Large Waterfall with the highest cascade (13 meters). The Long Waterfall is the last one from the complex ending in the height of 1153 m above the sea level. Studenovodské vodopády are beautiful and attractive for tourists, who can get there from three different directions. For the first Tatra's visitors, the first alpine chalet (Reinerova chata) was built in 1863 on the Starolesnianska plateau - in the southern part of the High Tatras - under which the complex of waterfalls begins.
