SNĚŽKA - ASCENT OF THE HIGHEST MOUNTAIN IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC

Sněžka Peak (1602 m.) has attracted pilgrims for over five hundred years. Its name is derived from the adjective snowy or snow-covered.

With its shape, Sněžka is reminiscent of a triangular pyramid, where the sharp northern slope falls on the Polish side, the western ridge on the top plain of Úpske peat bog and the southern slope by Krkonoše Mine. The Czech-Polish state border passes through its peak and you can find a unique alpine landscape there unlike anywhere in Central Europe.

Sněžka peak can be reached by many routes from different directions.

  1. Cable railway
  2. Krkonoše Mine from Pec pod Sněžkou
  3. Through Růžohorky from Pec pod Sněžkou
  4. Through Růžohorky from Šramlu from Velká Úpa
  5. Cable car to Portášky from Velká Úpa via Růžohorky
  6. Via Richtrovv boudy, Výrovka and Luční bouda (route via Modrý důl)
  7. Cable car to Hnědý vrch, through Liščí hora, Bufet Na Rozcestí, Výrovka and Luční bouda
  8. Through Severka, Bufet Na Rozcestí, Výrovka and Luční bouda
  9. From Horní Malá Úpa through Jelenka Chalet
