Sniezka, Karpacz

4.5
#1 of 16 in Wildlife in Lower Silesia Province
Hike in the alpine environment of Sniezka, a mountain on the border between the Czech Republic and Poland. Clear paths and ski lifts lead to the top with its disc-shaped observatory and a restaurant, a weather station, and a round, wooden chapel dedicated to St. Lawrence. Several shelters on the way up offer refreshments, such as beetroot soup and beer. Chains close to the top will make your journey safer. The summit is the highest point in the Czech Republic at 1,603 m (5,259 ft) above sea level. The most inaccessible side of the mountain is its south slope, which is cut with deep couloirs.

  • It is known that the weather in the mountains can be capricious, and it seems that this knowledge comes from those who tried to get the Snowka;) The weather changed in a second, unfortunately we did not admire the views from the top, because at all times Sněžka was envelops in the clouds. At the very end of the snow on the path was very difficult to enter and descent, while personally I count it towards the additional "attractions". Very big minus is the lack of a restaurant at the top or although I do not know... Shelter?, in which you would be able to relax and warm up a little-low temperature, very strong wind and clouds-that is, moisture-they have been firmly in the signs. The whole evening I wasn't able to dogrzać. Overall-beautiful, interesting and for me a good challenge:)

  • During our visit closed the yellow and red route, so it was black, and on it crowds of people. There are no words on the deliquents in the Adidaskach and with the wheelchair for children. People probably think it's a hike around the cobmy cube. Scarf, cap, gloves obligatory. I do not mention the snow, ice, and the Konars on the route. I think every thinking man is aware of what this fun is all about:) On the way two stops. Entrance to the KPN payable at the bottom.

  • Amazing view and a nice hike. It get easier when you get to the steps. Once you get up there, it is so worth it.
  • Came here early April, 3 feet deep snow, icy to walk on, really strong wind leading up to the Sun Flower rocks along the red route, stunning scenery
