Description 

This is one of the most imposing and impressive mountains in the Tatras. The climbing ranges in difficulty, but there are a number of good hard routes here. The rock is high-quality granite composed of plates and split by various crack systems. Mnich is located in the Dolina Rybiego Potoku, meaning Fish Stream Valley.

On the northern end of the lake is a chalet. From the chalet, Mnich can be seen. From the Morskie Oko shelter, follow a the yellow marked trail for about 1 hour.
