Podgórna waterfall

It is the third highest – after the Kamieńczyk and Szklarka – waterfall in the Polish part of the Karkonosze Mountains. The water from Podgórna, flowing from the spring between Mały Szyszak and Tępy Szczyt, falls in three cascades from a 10-meter threshold in a narrow ravine, giving an extremely charming view.

The waterfall located near Przesieka is one of the greatest local attractions, although it is still not visited by as many tourists as each year come to see the two aforementioned waterfalls – Szklarki and Kamieńczyk. This does not mean, however, that it is inferior to them with its beauty. Right next to the Podgórna Waterfall, there are three hiking trails – black, green and yellow – which provide tourists with very easy access. Walking to the waterfall from Przesieka does not take more than 10 minutes, while reaching the site from the Wang Temple in Karpacz (along the green trail through Borowice) takes about 2 hours one way, but there is no doubt that it will not be time wasted.
