PLAN OF THE DAY & TRAIL DESCRIPTION

Please read attentively!

 

We will meet at 8:00 am on Saturday in front of the old building of Prague Main Train Station (Fantova budova). See the photo of the meeting point below.

 

 

We will travel by a privately chartered comfortable bus. The bus journey to the trail head will take about 2 hours and 45 minutes.

 

FOOD

Take your own picnic lunch, we’ll have it on the top of Sněžka! Bring at least 1.5 liter (better 2 liters) of water. After we finished the hike (around 16:00), you will be able to have a meal in a nice local restaurant (not included in the price).

 

Expected arrival back to Prague is around 21:30 but a delay is possible. Don’t plan anything important after the trip!

 

DIFFICULTY: Medium 

Good health and physical fitness is necessary!

 

The route is about 15 km long and leads mostly on the main ridge of the Krkonoše mountains. It is very beautiful but also relatively demanding. Be prepared for a steep ascent and descent to and from the peak, and narrow, uneven and potentially slippery trail.

 

See the altitude profile of the route in the picture below:

 

 

If you find yourself very tired, you will have the option to shorten the hike by taking the cable car from the top of Mt. Sněžka. to Pec p. Sněžkou. The ticket costs 200 CZK and is not included.
