Chochołowska Valley is the longest (about 10 km long) and the most extensive (over 35 km 2 sup>) 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.
You can buy hand-made Traditional Oscypek over the bonfire by a shepherd in this little hare.
Shepherd houses on Chochołowska glade and one resident. I recommend to see the spherical panorama.
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.
Jarzabcza Valley in the Western Tatras, Poland. Trail in the valley along the streams but you already see that it will be uphill in a moment.
Nature and views here are amazing. Beautiful natural landscapes: forests, shrubs, clearings, streams, rocks ... we are going up the hill...
The higher the better! Landscapes change with each step.
Short stop to take photos and we have to go up because it gets late ...
Trzydniowiański Wierch is a not very high (1758 m) peak in the Polish Western Tatras. It is worth to come here to admire the views.
Plants on the slope create an amazing natural carpet with abstract patterns ...
fewer clouds in the sky ... there is more light ... the weather is getting better with every moment ... more colors and shapes in the landscapes
In the Tatras I felt like in a big garden. Trees, shrubs, flowers, grasses, bushes, berries and blueberries.
Starorobociański Wierch (Klin), the far left, is the highest peak (2176 m) in the Polish Western Tatras. Panorama of the Tatras from Trzydniowiański Wierch.
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.
The red trail from Trzydniowian Wierch to the Triathlon Glade. In the beginning you have to go through the mountain pines (creeping pines)...
And then go down the stairs about one hour ... After descending into the valley just about 1.5 hours down the road ... The road got a little longer ... After coming to the parking, we saw that there were no buses ... and here GREAT THANKS for couple from Warsaw for stopping and transporting us to Koscielisko!
