Nad tatrzańskie jeziora
To the Tatra lakes
The first part of the expedition (to the Morskie Oko lake), is not too exhausting. The trail follows an asphalt road (closed to traffic) from the car park on the Palenica Białczańska glade, and although quite unvaried, it guarantees wonderful views. Morskie Oko is surrounded by the highest peaks in Poland, while the stylish mountain refuge serves wholesome fare and guarantees good rest. From Morskie Oko, the route follows a yellow trail to the Szpiglasowa Pass (2114 m asl), from which you will descend to the Valley of Five Polish Lakes. Apart from the lakes, its attraction is also Poland’s largest, 70-metre high Siklawa waterfall. In order to get there, you need to switch to the blue trail at the edge of the valley, and then continue on the green. Walking on, following the green signs down the Roztoka valley, you will pass another waterfall – Wodogrzmoty Mickiewicza (Mickiewicz Waterfall).
