Let’s hike to Milešovka!
27 April @ 8:30 am - 7:30 pm
Let’s conquer yet another Czech peak! The Central Bohemian Uploads is a group of extinct volcanoes in the the north-western Czech Republic and the highest of them is called Milešovka (837 meters/2746 ft a.s.l.).
In the 19th century, the famous German explorer and geographer Alexander von Humboldt used to come here to enjoy the view. He thought it was the third most beautiful panorama in the world and he was a hell of a traveler!
Since there is no cable car, Milešovka is not as busy as many other Czech mountains. Only true hikers and nature lovers make it to the summit!
But not to worry, we are in the Czech Republic, so there is definitely a pub at the top! You will be able to refresh yourself with beer or soda and Czech pub classics like cabbage soup, sausages and pickled cheese. There is also a meteorological station that doubles as a viewing tower and a museum (admission 30 CZK is not included).
MEETING TIME & LOCATION
We’re meeting on Sunday April 27th at 8:30 AM at the Prague Main Train Station. The meeting point is inside of the station, in front of the main ticket office. If you can not find the group, call me at [masked].
We should arrive at the starting point of the hike around 10:30.
Expected arrival time back at the Prague main station is 19:10. As always, a delay is possible. Don’t plan anything vital after the trip!
There is a restaurant and a kiosk on the top of Milešovka. Don’t expect a huge selection of food, but they do accept cards!
About 15 km/9 miles of hiking with a steep ascent to Milešovka (in total 573 meters/1880 ft of vertical gain). Manageable by a healthy city-dwellers/office workers who are used to walking.
