Photographer's Note

The Chocholowska Valley, covering the area of 35 square km, is not only the largest valley in the Polish Tatra Mountains, but the longest one as well (10 km in length). It is situated in the Polish Western Tatras. Two parts can be distinguished in the Chocholowska Valley – the lower one, which looks more like a ravine with the so-called ''Gates'' . It is also here that the caves can be found, however, they are not open to the public. The other part of the valley was modelled by the glacier, thus, it differs in the landscape features. The richness of the wildlife, the unique beauty of the Chocholowska Clearing, the presence of rare plant species, the colourful diversity of the surrounding peaks depending on the season, etc. make it a must on the long list of Zakopane attractions.
