The hike from Rýhor through Horní Albeřice to Lysečin leads through a picturesque landscape full of meadows with lots of views. You will go in the easternmost part of the Giant Mountains on the border with Poland. Compared to other parts of the mountain range, there are significantly fewer visitors here, which is nice. The described section is approximately 7 kilometers long with an ascent and descent of approximately 200 meters

View of Rýhorská bouda

From the intersection Kutná – Rychory we descend to another intersection of tourist routes – Rychory Cross. Looking back, we see Rýhorská bouda on the top of the ridge

Ryhorský cross

Rýhorský kříž is an important intersection of both pedestrian and bicycle routes. We will continue along the red path along the slope of Mravenečník hill (1,005m) /overgrown mountain without a view/.

View of Sněžka

This is followed by a section of about two kilometers, mostly through forest, without any interesting views. We also go through the „Border Corner“, where we reach the border with Poland. We finally reach the meadows with a beautiful view of Sněžka

Above Alberice

We are slowly approaching the next crossroads for a beautiful scenic drive. From there it is possible to go down to Poland, or to continue along the green route along the border (leading through the forest). We will go down the red road to Albeřice to enjoy more views

Blooming summer meadows in the Giant Mountains

This hike is not only interesting because of the views, but also because of the beautiful blossoming Krkonoše meadows with lots of butterflies.
