Photo Gallery » Sniezka Giant Mountains

We decided to go to the highest peak of Sudety - Śnieżka on a beautiful September day. We went from Karpacz (Biała Jar) by the red trail through the Łomniczki Kocioł and the Silesian House Mountain Chalet to Śnieżka. From the top, continue along the red trail through Czarna Kopa to Sowia Przełęcz. We went to Karpacz along the black trail, and we returned to the White Jar along the green trail. A very scenic route - distance: 17.5 km; walk time 6:15; total approach: 1055 meters; total descends 1063 meters.

Entry to the red trail in the Karkonowski National Park and of course the admission fee ... I am not an enthusiast of such a solution to put money on every path and charge for entering the forest ...
