The name Žabie plesá (Frog mountain lakes) are borne by three charming mountain lakes - Great, Small and Upper Frog Lake, located in the basin of Žabie plesá in Mengusovská Valley. They are surrounded by rough and wild, rocky peaks. Apparently, they got their name after stone islands in the middle of the Great Frog Mountain Lake, which resemble a frog.

Veľké Žabie pleso (Great Frog Mountain Lake) is located in the upper part of the basin of Žabie plesá at an altitude of 1,919 m above sea level. It is the largest and most visited, as it lies right next to the tourist route leading to Rysy. In the past, it was connected to the Small Frog Mountain Lake.

Malé Žabie pleso (Small Frog Mountain Lake) is the lake laid lowest. The Žabí brook flows out of it and after about two kilometers it flows into the Hincov brook. The lake has a crescent shape, but gradually it is filled with rock avalanches, and thus it is getting smaller.

Vyšné Žabie pleso (Upper Frog Mountain Lake) lies in a small basin under the walls of the Volia Veža Peak at an altitude of 2,040 meters above sea level. This lake is without a tributary and is inaccessible to tourists.

Žabie plesá is a pleasant stop on the tourist route leading from Popradské Mountain Lake through Mengusovská Valley to Rysy.
