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 :-)
In Chochołowska Valley
We left in the morning. The weather was not too "photographic".
Nature in Chochołowska Valley
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.
Shepherd house, Chochołowska glade
You can buy hand-made Traditional Oscypek over the bonfire by a shepherd in this little hare.
Chocholowska Valley and Tatra Mountains in the clouds
Shepherd houses on Chochołowska glade and one resident. I recommend to see the spherical panorama.
Chocholowska Valley, Tatra Mountains in Poland
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.
Creek in mountains, Jarzabczy Potok
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.
Valley in the Western Tatras
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.

Western Tatras Mountains and Grzes Mountain
Short stop to take photos and we have to go up because it gets late ...
Tatras Mountain Trzydniowianski Wierch
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.
Natural carpet, Tatras
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
Tatras, picture of Konczysty Wierch
In the Tatras I felt like in a big garden. Trees, shrubs, flowers, grasses, bushes, berries and blueberries.
Trail in the mountains, Starostobocianski Wierch

Chocholowska Valley, photo of the Tatras Mountains
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.
Trails in the Tatras
The red trail from Trzydniowian Wierch to the Triathlon Glade. In the beginning you have to go through the mountain pines (creeping pines)...
Stairs in the mountains
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!
