Imaggeo On Monday: Vanished glaciers of the past

Imaggeo On Monday: Vanished glaciers of the past

No glaciers remained in the High Tatras since the last glaciation, but beautiful glacially carved landscapes and a multitude of small glacial lakes. This one, Zamrznuté pleso (2045 a.s.l.) is at one of the beautiful hike trails in the eastern part of the Tatras, the path through Poľský hrebeň and to the summit Východná Vysoká (2429 a.s.l.).
