A trip to Szpiglasowy Wierch (2172 m above sea level) from Dolina Pięciu Stawów is not a difficult trail in summer. There are chains on the way to Szpiglasowa Przełęcz, but when it is dry this trail should not be problematic. It is about 4 kilometers from the shelter in the Dolina Pięciu Stawów Valley to the summit, which should not take more than 2.5 hours; the difference in elevation is about 500 m. I invite you to a short photo story from our trekking.
We started the blue trail from the mountain hut through the Dolina Pięciu Stawów Valley. It is probably one of the most beautiful Tatra valleys!
We passed the Wielki Staw Polski on the way to Szpiglasowy Wierch. It is the deepest lake in the Tatra Mountains and the third deepest lake in Poland. According to various sources, the pond is 79.3 or 80.3 meters deep.
We turned left onto the yellow trail behind Wielki Staw and started walking towards Szpiglasowa Przełęcz. On the way, we found a rock that reminds me a bit of the famous Norwegian Troll tongue - Trolltunga :-)
The yellow mountain trail to Szpiglasowy Wierch rises with gentle curves towards the pass. We go up and admire the changing mountain landscapes.
There, you can enjoy views of the Valley of the Five Lakes and beautifully situated mountain hut along the way.
There is a short section of the trail with chains just before the Szpiglasowa Przełęcz.
There is no universal answer to this question ... There is time in the mountains to take a distance from everyday life and focus on the present - to be 100% "here and now".
This allows you to experience and admire nature more deeply and to overcome your weaknesses and fears. If you manage to calm down and achieve inner peace, a walk among the wonders of nature can be a form of deep meditation, and if not, such views from the peaks will reward every effort.
The photo shows Cubryna, Mięguszowieckie Szczyty and Koprowa Wierch.
We reached the top of Szpiglasowy Wierch just over two hours after leaving the hut :-) There is joy!
