Photo Gallery » Chochołowska Valley, Tatras Poland

Chochołowska Valley is the longest (about 10 km long) and the most extensive (over 35 km 2 ) valley in Polish Tatras. We walked a long time (over 2 hours) - from the entrance of Siwa Polana to the PTTK shelter at Glade Chochołowska. From the shelter we went along the red trail at Trzydniowiański Wierch to go down the red trail to the valley at Polana Trzydniówka. From there just a 1.5 hour walk down the valley ... The whole route is over 21 km. Fortunately, I changed the SLR camera to the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II with the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-100mm f / 4 IS PRO lens (24-200mm for the full frame), which significantly reduced the weight of the equipment.

Shepherd houses at the entrance to Chocholowska Valley. You can get to this place by car or by bus. From here you can go on foot or ride (about 3,5 km to Polana Huciska) the "train" - a carriage that pulls a tractor converted to a locomotive :-)

We left in the morning. The weather was not too "photographic".

I'm a fan of trees! I love to admire their survival and ability to grow even in the most difficult conditions. Trees growing on rock shelves - a natural pattern for Bonsai creators.

The weather was getting better and better and more light appeared in the clearances between the clouds. Photo from the Chochołowska Glade near the PTTK mountain shelter. I recommend a spherical photo of the glade.

We left the valley up the red trail towards the Jarząbcza Valley along the Chochołowski Potok (creek). And here again on the trail above the mountain shelter is much less tourists.

In the Tatras I felt like in a big garden. Trees, shrubs, flowers, grasses, bushes, berries and blueberries.

In the late afternoon the clouds split and the sun shone. The landscapes had amazing colors. There was a strong wind and it was cold. Fortunately, we had jackets, hats and gloves in our backpack.

Kościelisko Resort, apartments in Tatra Mountains

Strzelców Podhalańskich 54

Nice apartment!!!

The apartment is warm, dry and quite elegant - maybe without the madness but the price is 100% adequate for the quality of service.

I would recommend!
