Located at the bottom of a valley east of the Five Lakes Valley, Lake Morskie Oko (the eye of the sea) is arguably the most beautiful in the region. The ascent is made on an asphalt road forbidden to cars that passes through a beautiful forest of fir trees and along the Białka River, on the border with Slovakia. Shortly after the start of the climb, we come to waterfalls, the Mickiewicz Falls (wodogrzmoty Mickiewicza).
