In High Tatras are some villages with ideal start points for hiking to the mountains or valleys. The village Štrbské pleso is the most well-known and the most popular place in High Tatras. It is a small village with the same-named mountain lake, where many sport events take place, and many Slovak and international athletes organize their training camps.
You can relax there the whole day; you can walk around the lake, rent a small boat, go for luxurious wellness procedures or go hiking.
Štrbské pleso is suitable also for walking with small children. The size of the lake is 19,76 ha, thanks to which it is the second largest one in Slovakia with the altitude of 1 346 m above sea level. You can walk around the whole mountain lake on very nice and easy terrain. The length is approximately 2 200 m.
We’ll arrive to the High Tatras National Park in the afternoon, so we can take an easy walking around lake in Štrbské pleso village. Take a rest at your hotel.
You can go also to the lake Jamské pleso. In this hike, you will come to Jamské pleso from Štrbské pleso by the red marked tourist route leading up to the peak Kriváň. The mountain lake is hidden in the woods; it has beautiful color and the atmosphere there is very peaceful. The hike to the lake takes approximately 1,5 hours and the terrain goes up and down regularly and moderately, so the hike is very nice.
You will go to one of the most beautiful lakes in High Tatras. At first, you’ll visit Popradské pleso with an amazingly looking lake and symbolic cemetery dedicated to victims of High Tatras. There are two mountain hotels near the lake, where we can rest for a while.
