Mały Staw (Kleiner Teich)
The glacial lake is 2.9 hectares large and only 6.5 m deep. The water is amber in colour and its physical properties remind us of a alpine lake glaciated 190 days per year. It is the second largest lake in the Giant Mountains. The water in both lakes has the colour of jade and its physical properties are similar to those of water in Alpine lakes which are covered in ice for 190 days a year, such as Silser-See in Switzerland, which lies some 600 m higher. Kotel formations above both fishponds, and Velká Sněžná jáma are among the most perfect corrie formations in the Polish part of the Krkonoše.
