Region: World » Polen » Wysokie Tatry
Date of the hike:13 December 2011
Hiking grading: T3+ - Difficult Mountain hike
Geo-Tags: PL   SK 
Time: 4:00
Height gain: 800 m 2624 ft.
Height loss: 800 m 2624 ft.

On this third day in the Tatry I was guided by a local mountain leader. For this reason the start of the tour was not in Polana Palenica but in Włosienica... a couple of kilometers from Polana Palenica.

Originally, the idea was to cross Szpiglasowa Przelecz and to go to the Wielki Staw Polski. However the conditions of snow did not allow for that time. Therefore we climbed up to a small pass behind the Mnich...

What suprises me in the Tatry is the number of people that are hiking even in this season and also the fact that the mountain huts are opened throughout the year. It is vey suprising to arrive in Morskie Oko and to find a warm place where one can have something to drink and to eat.

This is also the reason why it is so surprising to see people carrying not so many items in terms of beverage or food... because the distances are "quite" short and there are plenty of mountain huts.

Instead of talking to much, I prefer to display more pictures about this beautiful mountain range...
