Snowy Cirque in the Giant Mountains
Snowy Cirque or Snowy Pits (Polish: Śnieżne Kotły) are two glacial cirques in the western Karkonosze Mountains (Giant Mountains) in Poland. They are a unique example of the alpine landscape in the Karkonosze National Park . They were formed during the last phase of the glacial period and consist predominantly of granite. However, in two exposed places basalt was found (apparently of volcanic origin), which is quite rare in this part of Central Europe. The walls of cirques are about 100 metres, and at the top of the larger cirque, at the Łabski Szczyt, there is a radio and television tower (Wikipedia).
