First day here, I hiked up to Kasprowy Wierch, in the West Tatras. For the first bit of the hike it was fairly clear, but once I got a bit higher, where the view should’ve gotten better, the fog/clouds got really thick. The top of Kasprowy Wierch is on the ridge line that defines the border between Poland and Slovakia, and here’s the glorious view of Slovakia that I got at the top!

About Zakopane

Since childhood I have always been fascinated by mountains. Family trips of summer in the lower Himalayan hill stations like Darjeeling, Gangtok, etc. in India, has always been stuck in my mind and played a very important role in making me a genuine lover of the mountain and hilly landscapes.So it comes as no surprise that wherever I go to travel in the world, I always search for hills and mountains near that place. That is why, when I went to live in the lovely central European country of Poland, I could not hold myself to check out it’s beautiful mountain range called the Tatra mountains.Tatra mountains are part of Carpethian mountain range and situated in the south of Poland, marking it’s border with nearby country Slovakia. In the valley of Tatra, the town of Zakopane is situated which is arguably the most famous hill station of Poland both in summer and winter. Thousands of mountain lovers visit the town everyday to trek in summer and for skiing and other winter sports in the winter.I arrived to Zakopane in the beginning of August with my girlfriend, with the goal to trek and explore the beautiful Tatra national park and its mountain peaks for a week. Zakopane is just a couple of hour bus ride from the most famous city of southern Poland Krakow.We booked a room is a family-run hostel on the southern edge of the town, just half a kilometer away from the entrance of Tatra National Park. All the trekking and skiing trails of Tatra mountains are situated inside the national park and for better maintenance of nature and wildlife of the park, the entry is partly restricted and 5 złoty (Polish currency, 1 euro = 4.2 złoty) ticket need to be bought for entering the park. After entering the room we opened the back door to a lovely terrace where the beautiful view of the national park was waiting to welcome us.
