Popradské pleso (Poprad Mountain Lake) is an iconic location for any hiking in the High Tatras. It is a place that no visitor to the Tatras should miss.

It is located in the Mengusovska Valley, surrounded by the Tatra peaks of Ostrva, Tupá and the opposite ridge with peaks such as Satan, Malá Bašta and Patria.

Popradské pleso has the great advantage that it is easily accessible by asphalt road. In summer, you can go on foot or on a bike with your whole family. Even mothers with baby buggies won't have a problem to get there.

A walk around Popradské pleso is unpretentious, very relaxing and is a real balm for the soul and a wonderful fairy tale for your eyes.

The Popradský pleso bank is bordered by the characteristic Mountain Hotel and Majláth Cottage, where you can eat and relax in addition to accommodation, for example, before climbing the Rysy, Ostrva and other hills nearby.

A little further down, in Limb Grove, there is a Symbolic Cemetery. There are memorial plaques with the names of people who died in the High Tatras as well as in other world mountains.

Popradské pleso itself was created after the retreat of glaciers in the recent ice age. Thus, the water from the surrounding valleys and gables filled the valley. The water in the lake has a typical yellow-green colour.
