Kamieńczyk Waterfall - the highest waterfall in the Polish part of the Karkonosze Mountains


The highest waterfall in the Polish part of the Karkonosze Mountains (Giant Mountains) is Kamieńczyk Waterfall (Polish: Wodospad Kamieńczyka). Waterfall is very impressive all year round and it is a frequent target of the tourist hiking. It is located in the Karkonosze National Park, on steep northern slopes of mountains, on one of the trails leading from Szklarska Poręba to the summit of Szrenica. It is one of the most spectacular and rich in content geosites in the Giant Mountains. The water of the Kamieńczyk stream forms a three-level cascade 27 m high falling to the gorgeous Kamieńczyk Gorge. The gorge is about 100 m long with vertical, rocky walls reaching over 25 m in height while its width at some parts is less than 4 meters. Behind the middle waterfall cascade there is a cave called Golden Cave (Polish: Złota Jama) hammered by the Walloons (Medieval masters in excavating and processing natural minerals, iron ores, metals, precious stones and quartz) and famous for pegmatite and amethyst stones concentration. 
Acces to the waterfall is limited and paid. It is open every day from 9 am to 4 pm.

    1. The highest and the greatest waterfalls in Poland are Wielka Siklawa (65 m) and Wodogrzmoty Mickiewicza. They are located in Tatra Mountains.

    2. Thank you for your reply. 65m is very high and it should be spectacular if it has as much water as this one.

  13. Your photography is impeccable and the falls so beautiful. In the first shot you can see the presence of minerals in the water over time. I am featuring a waterfall of a different nature if you care to drop over and see it. I love water photography ... this is lovely.
