Continuing my autumn trips, I went hiking over the last weekend of September which happened to be a long one in Czechia.
This time I went to the Krkonose Mountains which are the highest and most visited Czech mountains. I booked a great hotel.
All in all it was a great and relaxing experience the highlight of which was a 20 kilometer hike at ~ 1.300m height.
Of course, I could not miss the opportunity to take some quick (as always) pictures with my phone. I noticed the sun shone so wonderfully and the reflection on the waters of Elbe river and on the stones made some pictures look very bad; yet, I’m just an amateur so the quality is not surprising :)
The view from outside of the hotel
There was some fog on Friday afternoon
…but it cleared quickly giving us a nice view of houses along Elbe
Elbe goes through the resort Splinderuv Mlyn
A ski slope without snow looks funny, right?
As you walk up the mountains you can see valleys and cottages here and there
As well as some places where cows are happily eating the grass
Preparing for the winter means adding another “wall” made of chopped wood
At 1300 meters you can see bald mountains
A tundra in Central Europe…
And another picture from the tundra
This lake is in Poland, which is on the other side of the Krokonose mountains
… as is this rock complex
A morning walk by Elbe river
A bench to remind us that it’s a ski resort - like we could forget :)
One can only wonder where the roots of this tree are
…while this one has so many roots that are part of the path
I can see the roots of this one, and still don’t believe it!
If you have not been to Splinderuv Mlyn or the Krokonose mountains, I suggest you plan a trip. Any time of the year the view is wonderful.
