1. Hike from Strbske pleso to Skok waterfalls in High Tatras
Strbske pleso is a gateway to many favorite tours in High Tatras. Park your car/bus/bike there and hike away! It’s a neat short tour up to the waterfalls (3 hours there and back on yellow marked path) and the views are worth it. Fresh air of High Tatras is known to be curative. If you feel strong, walk up along the waterfalls and look at them from above! You’ll find mesmerizing mountain lakes at the top.
For slow walkers, take a relaxed walk around Strbske pleso tarn. It’s so beautiful there… Many locals find accommodation in the centre and with the first rays of daylight undertake whole-day hikes to Tatra peaks.
