  Sniezka Mountain
by call_me_rhia

The hike to Sniezka Mountain, near the town of Karpacz, is an easy but plesant hike. The top lies at 1602 metres above sea level. The first stretch, however, can be shortened by using a very old (year 1959) and precarious chair-lift. From there it's just under an hour to the top, where you can find the St. Laurentius Chapel and a futuristic building resembling a flying-saucer (it's a meteo station, btw). From there you can take the loger path back down to Karpacz, passing en route some nice alpine lakes and two cosy mountain huts. All together it should take 3 to 4 easy hours

Equipment: Hiking boots and a bottle of water. A map of the area can be handy, too

Address: Karpacz
