Although relatively unknown in comparison to mountain ranges such as the Alps, Dolomites, Pyrenees, the Carpathian mountains form an arc roughly 1,500 km long across central and eastern Europe making them the second-longest mountain range in Europe (after the Scandinavian mountains). The western Carpathians form the boundary between Poland and the republics of Czech and Slovakia.
I have now travelled further east along that border to a small village on the Czech side called Stribrnice. From there I followed a path that relentlessly winds its way up to yet another summit that lies on the Polish/Czech border called Snieznik (1138m/P657) and, hence, yet another 'snow mountain'.
