 A Czech range that boasts challenging hiking and the tallest peak in the country, Snezka. We've yet to go, but our friends the Oranginas walking group from the Netherlands have been and say:

"A trail in the borderland of Poland and the Czech Republic, among which the ski-resorts of Pec and Spindleruv-Mlyn (spinning wheel). On foot a great area to discover. Highest place: the Snezka mountain (1602 m.), at Easter complete in the snow and high winds and with difficulties in finding the paths and marks! But: there is a post-office! So, bring a compass and wear suitable clothes and shoes! In the valleys green spring begins."

THANK YOU ORANGINAS! See their full thoughts on their site. They have some great recommendations for accommodation, maps, etc.
