Escape the heat to the Jizera Mountains
Hot days in towns are unbearable these days. Hot concrete and town centres don’t provide any refuge. The situation is different in the Czech mountains. “The Jizera Mountains are ideal for flight from hot cities. Even though many people don’t believe it, high temperatures in the mountains are tolerable even for trips on bikes or when hiking,” says Mr Ivo Konečný from the Tourist Association, and adds that there usually isn’t anything that can be heated to high temperatures in nature.

The perfect way to get to the waterfalls on the Černá Desná River is from the town of Desná, following the red markings, i.e. upstream. Step by step you will pass the Plotnový waterfall and, further on, the Dlouhý, Bukový and finally even the Hrncový waterfalls. “There is quite a strong current in this part of the Černá Desná River. The elevation gain in this 100-metre long protected stretch is approx. 600 metres,” points out Mr Bažant.
