The peak of Babia Gora aka Diablak (1,725m)

According to folk tales, the mountain was the location of the witches' sabbath (Babia Gora translates Witches' Mountain or Old Wives' Mountain).

Babia Gora is sometimes nicknamed Matka Niepogod (Mother of Bad Weather). Located far from any other mountains of similar height that would provide a natural barrier, it is very susceptible to weather changes. Snow can remain on the northern slopes and in narrow gorges until summer.

From Wikipaedia

The pic was taken at around 1,500m.

What makes this mountain special is the fact that there aren't any such high mountains in the neighbourhood. Therefore, Diablak can be seen from pretty long distances. (See my tomorrow's/next day's post)

What's more you can enjoy a great panorama of the Tatra Mountains, provided the air clarity is good.
