Rysy (2503m) – Highest peak of Poland (2/2)

Rysy is a mountain in the crest of the High Tatras, lying on the border between Poland and Slovakia. Its middle peak at 2,503 meters is the highest point of Poland. The other two peaks (at 2,499m & 2,473m) are on the Slovak side of the border, in the Prešov Region.

 Stunning view back down to Morskie Oko  Maja & Zigeiner on top of Poland

Deep snow forced me to turn around 200m below Poland’s highest point 2 years earlier

Rysy – you are conquered now!!
