On the third morning we woke up with terrible leg pain ... For a moment I wanted to do a one day of rest. However, after breakfast we found that it hurts the most when going down so we will go uphill :-) We went from Nędzówka through Przysłop Miętusi, Dolina Małego Łąki, Kondracka Pass to Kondracka Kopa and from there to Kasprowy Wierch. Route for less than 7 hours of walking, length about 12 km and 1,544 m to climb and 509 m to go down. From Kasprowy Wierch we could go down to Kuźnice (2 hours) or stay to sunset and take the cable car.
Kościelisko and Butorowy Wierch
Quick shopping - sandwiches, cakes, water ... and we go on the trail.
Giewont Mountain is impressive on this side - a gigantic rock and a small cross at the top ...
Mulowa Valley and Czerwone Wierchy
The trail from Nuzówka to Przysłop Miętusi leads mainly through the forest but sometimes there are nice views.
Hiking trail: Ścieżka nad Reglami
Black hiking trail in the Western Tatras about 17 kilometers long.
Little Meadow Valley (Dolina Małej Łąki) in the Tatra Mountains. The highest peak on the left is Giewont and on the right you can see the rocky slopes of the Czerwone Wierchy (Red Peaks).
Trail in the mountains on the Kondracka Kopa
Yellow trail in the mountains on Kondracka Pass - long approach ...
You can go in this way ... white sneakers, cola in hand and walk to Giewont :-) Can you? You can!
Tatra views, hillside and valley
We walk along the yellow trail from Kondracka Pass to the top of the mountain. It was really cold and the wind was strong. Hat, gloves, fleece, jacket - everything you need to wear... View on the slope of Kondracka Kopa and Little Meadow Valley (Dolina Małej Łąki).
Long approach to the peak of Kondracka Kopa. Kopa Kondracka (2005 m n.p.m.) in the Western Tatras is the lowest and the easternmost peak of the Czerwone Wierchy (Red Peaks).
Panorama of the Tatra Mountains from Kondracka Kopy
Strong wind and clouds above the mountains. The sun sometimes shone on the peaks and valleys ...
We went along the red trail from Kopa Kondracka to Kasprowy Wierch. On the left, the Sleeping Knight (Giewont) appeared again. There you can see the PTTK mountain shelter at Hala Kondratowa on the bottom right.
Beautiful scenic hiking trail leading to Kasprowy Wierch. In the distance you can see Mount Swinica and rocky peaks of the High Tatras.
Late afternoon we came to Kasprowy Wierch. The sun rays illuminated the mountain landscape. It was about 2 degrees above zero and a very strong wind blew. Hands freezing on the camera. View from Kasprowy Wierch to the Western Tatras.
Trail from Kasprowy Wierch to Swinica
Panorama from Kasprowy Wierch to Świnica and High Tatras.
The sun began to light the mountains in the evening. The scenery was so beautiful that we decided to stay as long as possible at the top. We descended the last cable car - the prices for both the bar and the cable car ticket as in Switzerland.
Find an apartment
We stayed here:
Kościelisko Resort, apartments in Tatra Mountains
Strzelców Podhalańskich 54
34-511 Kościelisko, Poland
The apartment is warm, dry and quite elegant - maybe without the madness but the price is 100% adequate for the quality of service.
I would recommend!
