Bieszczady: Wolosate > Tarnica
1346 meters height Tarnica is the highest peak in the Bieszczady Mountains is south-east Poland. The shortest 2.5-hour approach trail to Tarnica leads from Wolosate village. This route is one of the most popular tourists trails in the region, because who would not be driven by the prospect of reaching the highest peak? Somewhere on the web you may even find photos from the May weekend of 2019, when the trail looked more like a crowded promenade than a mountain path. However, I prefer peace of mind and visit Bieszczady when everyone else is working. It is best to enjoy the nature when no others are around you.
This year May is much colder than May 2018, hence in the pictures below there are remains of snow and ice covering the higher parts of the mountains. I truly enjoyed snowy Christmas trees in spring.
