The High Tatras are located on the border of Poland and Slovakia, with peaks reaching over 2000 meters in height. The weather here can be unpredictable and sometimes scary, so if you ever visit this mountain range, make sure you are well prepared with all the necessary hiking gear and landscape photography accessories.

Day 1 – Strobskaya Lake

Our first stop was Strobsk Lake. It’s always freezing cold this time of year, but the light is spectacular. I’m pretty sure there were even some lenticular clouds in the sky, which form mainly when there’s a strong wind in the mountains. We got there on time, and the light was as spectacular as always. Okay, maybe it’s just me, but I always get lucky when I come here.

The lake is easily accessible by car, and there is a great hiking trail around it to explore the lake itself and those beautiful peaks. The whole area is very picturesque, so if you have a basic understanding of composition, you can capture beautiful landscape photos.

Although I took videos and photos, I couldn’t fly the drone due to the strong wind, which was quite a challenge for cold hands.

Lake Poprad

After a wonderful morning, we hiked to explore another great place – Lake Poprad. From the parking lot, the hike takes about 1 hour along the well-built asphalt trail. Unfortunately, due to the strong storms of the past few years, half of the trail is covered with destroyed trees, which makes the scenery a bit bleak. However, you can see the power of nature with your own eyes.

On the way, we reached the forest and I shot more footage for the planned video. We continued to the lake where we rested and refueled. We were very tired and hungry since we left Budapest around 1am to watch the sunrise at the lake. Majlath Chata is a perfect place for tired hikers.

Day 2 – Peninsky Nature Park

Our base has always been Zdiyar, a small village in the eastern Tatra Mountains. From here there are many good hiking trails and it is close to the Polish border.

We woke up early in the morning hoping to catch the sunrise. I had been thinking about a perfect spot for years but couldn’t find it the last time we were there. Pieninsky Nature Park is about half an hour’s drive from Zdiyar and can be easily reached on foot.

We were lucky this time and finally found this perfect spot. With the hills in the foreground and the Tatra Mountains in the background, it was guaranteed to be a great photo.

It was a wonderful weekend that we will always remember.
