Autumn in the mountains is a beautiful season. Beautiful colors, it's great. View of Valley of Five Polish Ponds.

Valley of Five Polish Ponds it is an alpine postglacial valley with the area of 6.5 km2, at the height of 1625 to 1900 m asl. In the valley, a glacier grooved a spacious bottom in the shape of a sickle with its ends pointing at north-west and south-east.

Total area of the lakes in the valley amounts to 61 ha, and they are: Wielki Staw Polski (Great Polish Pond) , Zadni Staw Polski (Back Polish Pond), Czarny Staw Polski (Black Polish Pond), Mały Staw Polski (Small Polish Pond), Przedni Staw Polski (Front Polish Pond) and Wole Oko (Bull’s Eye)

At Przedni Staw Polski, at 1671 m asl., there is the highest mountain shelter in the Polish Tatras - (you can see in the picture) hostel named after Leopold Swierz.
