Abstract

The paper contains the characteristics of selected tors of the Chochołowska Valley, tak-ing into account their geological structure, morphological location, aspect, morphometries, shape and microrelief of the surface of rock walls, as well as position in the altitudinal climate-vegeta-tion belt. It is shown that individual tor groups are typified by low mutual similarity.

Keywords: tors, development stages, the Chochołowska Valley, the Tatra Mts., Poland
