Tatra mountains are the highest mountains in Poland and one of the beautiful mountains in Poland. I and my two friends prepared a hike thru these mountains and this trail has around 90 km. We will be sleeping in shelters where we made a reservation a few weeks before this trip.
Entrance to Tatra National Park costs us per person 35.00 PLN for 7 days.
Day number 1
The first day is an easy day because we need only to hike from parking to shelter “Morskie Oko” where we will be sleeping.
The trail to this shelter is asphalt and has only 8 km to shelter, so we arrived very fast at our accommodation spot.
This is good because we have time to rest and prepare for the next day what will be rock climbing thru the snow to the highest summit in the Polish Tatra mountains – Rysy 2499 m a.s.l.
Day number 2
Today we get very early because our today trail isn’t easy and the weather is not perfect. We have snow and this snow is very muddy, so isn’t easy to climb.
Second, the reason is numbers of ascent and descent
number of ascents: 1139 m
number of descent: 1139 m
During this thru-hike, we hike around two lakes: Sea Eye (Morskie Oko) and Black Lake under Rysy (Czarny Staw Pod Rysami).
This day we achieve the highest summit in the Tatra mountains Rysy 2499 m a.s.l. and this is the next mountains summit to my collection to the Crown of Polish Mountains.
This hike we finish at the same place where we started – Morskie Oko shelter. From this place, we will be starting tomorrow’s trail.
Day number 3
On this day we hike to my favorite place in Tatra mountains – Valley five Ponds (Dolina Pięciu Stawów).
We start from shelter Morskie Oko and we start climb to Szpiglastowy Wierch summit 2172 m a.s.l – higest point in this day.
On the second side of this mountain hill, we can see the place we are headed today – Valley of five Pounds.
Inside this valley is a shelter (piątka / five called in the short name) where we will be sleep tonight and it is the highest situated shelter in the Polish mountains – 1671 m n.p.m.
Day number 4
Today we had plan to make Orlą Perć – one of the hardest trails in Poland, but looking at the weather and muddy snow we decided to change our plan a little bit remove Orlą Perć from our path (we climb only for the last part of this path – Krzyżne summit).
On both the trail, we finish in shelter Na Hali Konradowej.
That looks our trail on beginning:
That looks our trail after our correction and removing Orla Perć:
Day number 5
The next day and new kilometers on the trail to hike waiting. Today we hike 12 km to our next shelter Ornak, which is situated inside the forest with beautiful views.
Day number 6
Last day hiking by summits and last day to see the beautiful landscapes from the top of the mountains. Tomorrow will be only descending to the city.
At the end of this part of the trial, I saw something that I doesn’t like. A big part of the forest has been cut and there left the only root of the tree – I don’t saw there plant a new trees, so this wasn’t look nice – I think someone should check what going there.
Day number 7
Last day where we back to Zakopane where we got our train to back to our home. Trail from our last shelter in Dolina Chocholowska was very easy and led only descending – we made it very fast.
