Ascent to Radhošť

Although Mount Radhošť 1129m does not belong to the highest points of the Moravian-Silesian Beskydy, it is still an important place for both pilgrims and tourists. I will describe the route from the Na Pinduli saddle, from where there are regular connections, over the top of Radhošť to Pustevny, from where you can take the chairlift to Trojanovice.

Route description

From the Na Pinduli saddle, where I was brought by a bus from Frenštát pR, I walk out along a meadow, which begins to rise gradually, until it turns into a full-fledged ascent to Kaní kopec. From here there are nice views of the Pindula saddle and the adjacent peak of Kyčera. Furthermore, the road leads me mostly through beech forest to the crossroads of Montenegro. A rich spring once flowed here. After a short break, I continue along the red sign over Polana, where there is a wooden gazebo overlooking Radhošť. After a while, the ski slope will appear, where I will pick up about 100m of altitude and I'm already at the top. There is a radio transmitter, a chapel from the 19th century, built by the will of the people and not the church and a group of statues of Cyril and Methodius. The top is deforested and so there are nice views of the Wallachian region. Not far from the top on the route of the red sign stands the Mountain Hotel Radegast, where you can stay and refresh, it cooks well here. Here the panoramas open to the next side and if there is good visibility, you can also see the Little Fatra. The road gradually descends and changes shape in the form of a light wave to reach the statue of the god Radegast, there is a snack bar nearby, I stop at the ski slope, from where there are views to the north and to Lysá hora. After another moment I pass the Cyrilka lookout tower, from where I have Pustevny in the palm of my hand and I can see the top of Čertova Mlýn and Kněhyně. I'll treat myself to lunch in Pustevny and to catch the bus connection, I go down the cable car. The ride takes up to 20 minutes.
