Bialka Gorge - Bukowina Tatrzanska

Bialka Gorge

Bialka Gorge

The Bialka Gorge is a real beauty spot with rocks overhanging the stone banks of the river, which seems to be teeming at this place. It's quite a popular place with tourists and local people but you won't find crowds there. You can have a picnic in the forest on the banks and wade in the icy cold water. I remember even swimming at a place where there is a cavern in the rock and the water is deep. I was young then and loved it but got a muscle cramp in my arm after a time and had to ask someone to give me a massage, haha. The area is a nature reserve but I've seen people climb the highest rocks, Oblazowa (670 m) and Kramnica (688 m).
The place is best accessed by car, but you can also take a bus to Bialka, get off past the church and walk on, bearing right at the forks. On the way, you can have a look at the river from the bridge on the road leading to Trybsz, but then walk on along the same road as before till you come to the rocks.

The Tatras from a mountain clearing - Bukowina Tatrzanska

The Tatras from a mountain clearing

Hidden in the forest

The mountain meadow in the picture is situated off the main road about half-way as you walk towards Glodowka on your right. The great view is completely hidden from the main road by the forest, so only those who know it take this dirt road and after just about 20 m - there it is: a marvellous panorama of the whole Tatra range, sometimes seeming to be so close, sometimes in the distance. To avoid the traffic on the way to Glodowka, you can walk along the dirt road amidst the forest, soon, however, you will get back to the main road again.
