Moutain lake

An early start, as it was sunny and the rain was forecast from noon onwards.

We walked up a valley to Slovakia’s largest mountain lake, Vel’ké Hincovo pleso, at an altitude of 1948 metres. As the clouds had already moved in, we did not see the point of climbing up to Kôprovský štit, which offers great views of the lake and mountains around when the weather is good.

John could not resist going for a dip in the clear and cold water.

Un départ bien matinal car il faisait beau et la pluie était prévue dès midi.

Nous avons remonté la vallée pour atteindre Vel’ké Hincovo pleso, le plus grand lac de montagne de Slovaquie, à 1948 m. Les nuages étant déjà bien installés, nous avons renoncé à gravir le Kôprovský štit qui, par beau temps, offre de belles vues sur le lac et les montagnes environnantes.

John n’a pas résisté à l’attrait d’une baignade dans les eaux claires et froides du lac.
