Mount Pip Ivan Reviews
To cel nr jeden dla odwiedzających pasmo Czarnohory.W okresie międzywojennym tu przebiegała polsko-czechosłowacka granica i jeszcze dziś można oglądać kamienne słupki graniczne z tego okresu .Na samym... more »This destination is no one for the visitors of the black Band. During the interwar period there was a Polish-Czechoslovak border, and today you can watch the stone border posts from this period. At the very top is a building built in the years 1936 38 obserwatorium.im. Marshal Piłsudski. Collotically also called white Elephant. [Something for me] It has passed the various railways of fate, but in spite of the devastating it is kept valiate. I have heard about different plans for his future? At the building there are plaques with different information, Min. about the Polish financial contribution in its maintenance. Maybe too much about the story? The entrance to the summit is also a definite attraction. Our team drove the truck to a height of 1471 m above sea level. And before 9.00 we moved towards the summit. Quite an intense march after two hours we were at the Observatory. Beautiful views accompanied us all the time during the hike [and the wonderful weather], but only from the summit [2022 m above sea level] You can admire the entire panorama of these enchanting mountains. The route was varied. It came through the forest, in the "Tunu'kosodrzewiny or after a little more demanding gołoborzach. Of course you have to take something to drink and eat because on the way and at the apex we do not buy anything. Depending on the variant of the selected route and the weather, it is also appropriate to protect the proper clothes. You also need to prepare for a large number of people especially at the top-there is certainly not romantically.
Наверное,главное-то,что здесь расположен Черногорский поисково-спасательный отряд.В критичной ситуации эти ребята всегда придут на помощь.Сама обсерватория очень колоритно выглядит зимой,занесенная сн... more »Probably, the main thing is that the Montenegrin search-and-rescue detachment is located here. In a critical situation, these guys will always come to help. The observatory itself is very colorful in winter, marked with snow and icy. Inside there are a couple of small Rooms for unforeseen overnight stays. However rescuers try to keep them in reserve for really needing heating and rest. About the observatory itself you can find a lot of information on the Web. But recommend-visit Pip Ivan Live!
