Ah, now you got me ^^ I don't remember the peaks names, but the peaks I meant are right next to the town Zdiar. On another day we visited Slowenski ray/rai (sorry, slowakian paradise ^^) and at Strbske Pleso. But yeah, maybe it's not exactly the same spot But it reminded me of this place, awesome landscape
Yeah, could be Well it's a tradition that in the 4th semester of my Bachelor studies the students are divided into 3 groups. One group does an excursion to a place in Germany, one to a place in Poland and one to the Tatras. Of course everyone signs in for the Tatra group, so they have to pick some people out of this group who can go. And I was one of the lucky ones chosen The excursion was mainly about geological and fauna/flora aspects, but also about some current problems like this one hungry beetle and the succession after storm Kyrill. I'll never forget this excursion
It's a pity you haven't climbed one of the peaks that can be seen from Strbske Pleso. It takes about 4h to get to the top of Krivan (the mountain on Slovak euro coins ) or Rysy (the highest peak in Poland - 2499m). Btw. Kyrill was nothing compared to Velka Kalamita, although the latter had a more local character and affected mainly the Slovak part of the Tatras. Aerial photos like these two [link] ,[link] might give you an idea about the force of that storm. I was hiking when the wind blew with the speed of 110-120km/h and it was throwing me all over the place. Wind gusts up 230km/h that statistically took out every fifth tree in the Tatra region, are for me sth. really difficult to imagine.
Yeah, I've heard about Krivan, I love the coins with its picture on it Such a beautiful peak. Oh my god, the pictures are just unbelievable!! Such a powerful storm Luckily you got through it without being harmed!
