Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

During our visit we didn't see best of view of the lake since it was frozen but whatever we saw was really scenic and probably one of the best mountain lakes I have been to.

Our tour group of 22 spent two nights here in late September 2019 at one of the two hotels located on its shore.

This idyllic tarn (mountain lake), reaching a depth of 66 feet, was created by a receding glacier. It is the second highest glacial lake on the the Slovak side. It is also the most famous tarn in the High Tatras. Along with being a top tourists attraction, it is also attracts brides and grooms who come to have their wedding photos taken beside the tranquil water--and there were many during the time we visited.

A beautiful trail encircles the lake, offering fantastic views of the mountains, forests, and of course the lake. It took my spouse and me about 45-50 minutes to do the stroll. As you walk, do stop to enjoy the carvings of fish that can be found in various locations.

This is a lake with two large hotels on its shore and some other traditional buildings. You can walk the full distance around the lake in about 40 minutes.

It's backdrop is the High Tatra mountains. It's an extraordinary sight.

It's slightly spoiled by the large ski jump - no longer used - and a crane. Hopefully the crane will be gone soon.

There's boats for hire if you want to row.

This is a popular spot for bridal photographs - every day seemed to bring a new bride with a photographer in tow.

It's a very lovely lake, and it takes around 1-2 hours to go around it. There are few spots with activities for kids and you can also rent a boat (which we did). We enjoyed the views, the kids, however, felt it was a too long walk.

No trip to our favourite part of the Vysoke Tatry would be complete without a walk around the lake at Strbske Pleso. It’s a brilliant place to visit in summer for the walks, in winter as a winter skiing resort.

This time we took the cog railway from Strba , it was a nice way to climb the mountain and a return journey is only €2!

It’s a photographers paradise the scenery is just incredible, I’d implore people to visit.
