“From the roots to the treetops”. That is the name of one path, trail in Czech Republic, in mountains called Janske Lazne. We have taken there our Mexican family after visiting Prague – capital of Czech Republic, busy place.
But let’s talk about this trail. The Tree Top Trail is located in the heart of the majestic forests of the Krkonoše National Park. For me, mountains are amazing relax – piece for my mind. I have never been at this place before as it has been open last year. Therefore, it was great opportunity for all of us to visit it. I was just slightly worried about my dad. He has multiple sclerosis and not walking very well, however he did it to the top! I was impressed and he has my honest respect and I admire him even more than before ❤
It is quite relaxed walk… Firstly, you are reaching the “tower” in path, trail and you can see around beautiful nature with educational points with many interesting facts. Afterwards, you are getting closer and closer to the highest point of this trail… 🙂
Your breath will be taken away by the view from the 45 m high tower, thanks to which you will find the giant trees, some of which are over 150 years old, right at your fingertips. You will also visit a unique learning centre, located in the underground of the wooden observation tower, and consists of an intricate tree root system.
Interesting facts about trail:
- 45 meters – high observation tower will provide you with a unique bird’s-eye view
150 m2 the area of the underground educational centre, the only one of its kind in the Czech Republic, which will bring you directly to the roots of the Krkonoše forest
1,511 meters – the length of the Trail you will walk among the tree tops including the underground part
24 meters – the horizontal part of the Trail is located this high above the ground
6 stops – 3 educational a 3 amusement stops and a number of adrenaline elements on the Trail
364 days – except Christmas Eve, the Tree Top Trail is open for you every day of the year!
This place has amazed me. Definitely worth visiting and spending time with your beloved ones. Even if you have little monkey as I do, it is possible make it with buggy or stroller. And who has courage, you can “go” down by toboggan 😀 I do not have and I am really not a fan of these things. However, you are very quickly down – 12 to 16 seconds! All Mexicans have gone down that way, including my husband.
And at the end – that’s me, Vero, usually the one hidden behind the camera 🙂 Nice to meet you all! And the rest of the family you have already known or had a chance meet a bit earlier.
Have a great start of the week!
Vero with many Canitos ❤
