Join us in our amazing trip to the „heart of the Polish Tatra Mountains” – Morskie Oko
, situated among high mountains, one of the most beautiful lakes in Poland.
Morskie Oko is the most famous lake in Poland, and it is often said to be also the most beautiful one. It lies in the High Tatras at 1395 meters above the sea level and is surrounded by high mountain peaks reaching over 2000 metres, which creates a breathtaking panorama. Another great advantage of this place is that it is easily accessible. You can reach it by a picturesque 9-kilometer long route, on foot or in a traditional horse-drawn carriage. On the moraine locking the lake from the north there’s a PTTK mountain hostel located at 1405 meters above the sea level. It is one of the oldest and most beautiful of the Tatra mountain shelters and also a perfect starting point for trips to the higher parts of the mountains. It lies by tourist trails leading to Rysy, the highest peak of the Polish Tatras (2499 m), through Dolinka za Mnichem to Wrota Chałubińskiego and to the saddles: Mięguszowiecka Przełęcz pod Chłopkiem and Szpiglasowa Przełęcz. This last route through the Szpiglasowa Przełęcz gives you a chance to visit another stunning place – the Valley of the Five Lakes. This is, however, a high-mountain route and requires good physical shape and stamina.
