The path started at Palenica Białczańska, where the shuttle bus stop and the car park were. A small fee was required to enter the national park. Shortly after the waterfall Wodogrzmoty Mickiewicza, I left the main road and followed a path leading to the Valley of the Five Polish Ponds. After that it was a long way of climbing up. After passing by the mighty Wielka Siklawa, highest waterfall in Poland, I finally reached the Valley of the Five Polish Ponds and was met by the first lake. Though it was not a bright and shiny day, the view was still stunning. I took a little break by the shelter and had something to eat. I didn't visit the other two lakes at the other side. After that, the path continued to climb up until descending into the valley where Morskie Oko was situated. It was a beautiful lake but it was too crowded for my taste. I used the facility at the hostel by the side of the lake. After that, I took the main path and returned to Palenica Białczańska, where I took a shuttle bus to return to Zakopane.

It was a pity that the weather was not as fine as I hoped, but the scenery was lovely and the hiking was enjoyable nonetheless.
