The Hut in Dolina Pięciu Stawów (the Five Polish Lakes Valley) is the highest-situated mountain refuge in the country.

Siklawa – less than 15 minutes away from the hut. The waters of the whole valley gather in the Great Lake before rushing down the steep post-glacial wall, creating a 70 m high waterfall, the highest in Poland.

Wielki Staw (the great Lake)  is both the longest (1km) and the deepest (79m) tarn in the Tatra, and also the second-deepest lake in Poland.

Zadni Staw, (the Hind Lake) is the highest situated lake in Poland (1890m a.s.l.)

Kozi Wierch, one of the summits in the ridge north of the valley at 2291m is the highest peak to lie entirely on the Polish side, as opposed to Świnica, Rysy, etc. which are higher, but all lie along the national border.

The sum of the lakes’ areas in the valley is the greatest within the Tatra range.

The hut is the most remote hut in Polish Tatra and regardless of weather conditions, the hut operates throughout the year.

The blue walking trail from Morskie Oko to Hala Gąsienicowa, leading through Zawrat pass is the oldest marked path in the Tatras. It provides spectacular views, as long as the weather allowsof course. Enjoy!
