Jamské pleso

The picturesque easily accessible tarn Jamské pleso is located at an altitude of 1448 m. in the valley Važecká dolina. Its area is 0,67 hectares and a maximum depth of 4,2 meters. In 1936, the co-founder of the mountaineering association and the entrepreneur in tourism Gustáv Nedobrý (1893-1966) opened a private chalet at Jamské pleso. It was destroyed in the fires of 1943 and 1944. The first fire was caused by accommodated German children from the fascist organization Hitlerjugend and the second fire by the SS unit. In 1957 a grove of Swiss pines (Pinus cembra) was planted in memory of the Slovak National Uprising.

You can reach the tarn by a very gentle climb from Štrbské pleso along the red trail in about 1 hour.
