Some background info
The Hala Upłaz Chalet is a contemporary version of the shepherd’s hut (Bacówka) from a mountain glade called Polana Pod Upłazem. The hut existed at the turn of the 18th century and has been documented in the Tatra Museum. The Polana Pod Upłazem (1270-1300 m above sea level) and Polana Szałasiska are two glades that are a part of the Hala Upłaz area. Sheepherding began here towards the end of the 18th century (1787 survey). At that time the sheep were tended by the inhabitants of the village of Ratułowo. In 1811 Hala Upłaz was the property of Paweł Tylka from Ratułowo. During that time there were 40 oxen, 341 sheep, 130 ewes and lambs and 20 goats. In the period between thew two world wars, there were 8 chalets at Polana Pod Upłazem and 340 sheep, 20 ewes and lambs, 30 cows and heifers. These were all tended by 6 sheep herders with one senior herder and 6 cow herders.
