Góry Sokole

Wrzesień 24, 2016

A short summer walk in the Góry Sokole. I don’t think there is an English translation, but it literally means Falcon’s Mountains.
It is a very little mountain range, with the highest peak called Krzyżna Góra (Cross Mountain), 654 meters.
Góry Sokole and nearby Rudawy Janowicie are one of the most popular climbers spots in Poland, especially rock climbers.
Wanda Rutkiewicz started her climbing career on that rocks. She became the third woman, the first Pole, and the first European woman to reach the summit of Mount Everest. In 1986 she became the first woman to successfully climb and descend K2 (she has done it without oxygen!).

Śnieżne Kotły at sunset and just after…

Wrzesień 14, 2016

Śnieżne Kotły, which translates as Snowy Pits are two glacial pits situated in the Karkonosze National Park, on the Polish side. It’s a very unique example of the alpine landscape in the Karkonosze Mountains and has been a nature reserve since 1933.

On the way to Snowy Pits you pass one of the oldest mountain shelter in the area, called „Pod Łabskim Szczytem”. Its history goes back to 17th century. Even in those days the electricity comes from generator and is available only for few hours a day 🙂
