Maybe it's unfair to say how I reached this part of the mountains and why I was there. It wasn't a day for me but a celebration for someone else. As soon as I stepped on the lush alpine grass and breathed in the cool mountain air. My thoughts instantly transported me from my mundane routine to pure enjoyment, if only for an hour. 

It's a difficult feeling to explain. My senses were overloaded, and I was trying to absorb all of it in. The raw beauty of the mountains. The alpine grass is only touched by wild sheep and the cool crisp mountain air. It was a surreal experience. I guess that's why this spot in the Sharr Mountains, also pronounced Šar Mountains seems to me to be so epic. My time here was limited, and I knew it was a good chance that I would never be back again.

While the location of the glacial waters of Konjushka's Lake is not a secret. I feel like they should be. As the highest lake in the Sharr Mountains at an elevation of 2410m/7906ft. It lies between the foot of  Konjushka Peak and The Creviced Rock Peak. While I didn't reach here by foot. You can access the area by foot via a host of different routes.
