Description

The dominant of the beautiful Mlynecká Valley is the charming alpine Capie pleso (Billy Goat Mountain Lake). It is located at an altitude of 2000 m above sea level. As well as other mountaintops in the High Tatras, this was also created by the glacier.

Its name is not just a coincidence. It is related to the former abundance of chamois in the Mlynická Valley. Capie pleso has an area of 3 hectares and is 17 m deep.

It will enchant you not only with the beautiful surrounding scenery, but also with crystal clear water, which reflects the peaks of the surrounding hills. From its banks, one can admire, for example, the legendary Diablovina or the towering and pointed hill of Satan.

The starting point of the hikes to the lake is usually Štrbské Pleso from where it is via the marked tourist route just about 5km. From the lake, it is possible to continue towards Bystré Saddle, even to the narrow, terraced Furkotská Valley.
