Chata pod Rysmi

This hike is only for advanced hikers but with the most beautiful view. You can go there only in summer season (from July – 31 October). Its height is 2250 meters asl.

Idea of building the chalet is from 19th century. It was not easy, because mountain climber Ubald Felbinger and his team did not have enough money to build it. Avalanches damaged it three times and after reconstruction they finally opened it in 2013.
