Lysa Hora, Czech Republic

8. 5. 2013 - 30.090 steps; 22,27 km; 1.429 cal

Pred par hodinami jsme se vratili z vyslapu na Lysou Horu. Je treba si jeste uzivat kras Ceske Republiky dokud jsem tady. Dnesni statni svatek byl ve znameni strmeho vystupu na nejvyssi bod Moravskoslezskych Beskyd. Musim rict, ze je to nadhera. Vyslap zacal v pul osme v Ostravici. uz takto casne rano nam svitilo slunicko a na nebi ani mracek. Predpoved pocasi byla smisena. Ze zacatku tydne predpovidali prave toto pocasi a vcera vecer mi na mobilu blikaly bourky. Dobra vec se podarila a trocha deste nas zasahla vlastne az skoro u domovnich dveri zpatky doma :-)

Ale zpatky k te Ostravici! Jak se ukazalo pul osme neni na vyslap zas az tak brzo jak jsme si myslely. Pri ceste nahoru po cervene stezce, ktera zacina primo u vlakoveho nadrazi, jsme potkavaly plno lidi jdoucich smerem dolu. Coz znamena, ze museli jit nahoru uz nejmene kolem pate/seste - blazni pomyslely jsme si :-) To jsem, ale jeste nevedela, ze ze me muze byt takovy blazen take ;-) No co vam budu licit ... Je to makacka. Nejakou tu kondicku diku nordic walkingu mame, ale toto je strme a 8,5 km dlouha cervena stezka nas nechala poradne vypotit. Po ceste je videt plno krasnych panoramat, a tak jsme videly dokonce i polskou a slovenskou stranu nasich pidi velehor Beskyd.
Dolu jsme zvolily modrou stezku po druhe strane hrebene (?) smerem az do Frydlantu nad Ostravici. Cedule slibovala prochazku dlouhou tentokrat 11,5 km a protoze uz to melo byt jenom 'dolu' to vypadalo jako hracka. Dolu to sice skutecne bylo, ale bohuzel 11,5 je 11,5 pres Malenovice, Novou Ves az dolu do Frydlantu nad Ostravici. Rada vyplyvajici ze zazitku cloveka, ktery vysel Lysou Horu poprve? Nahoru po cervene, dolu po cervene :D Musim rict, ze me to chytlo a rozhodne to stoji za to v techto krasnych jarnich dnech!

I've returned a few hours ago from a hike to Lysa Hora. I decided to enjoy the beauty of Czech Republic while I'm here. Today was a bank holiday, so we decided for a steep climb to the highest point of the Beskydy Mountains. I must say that it's beautiful. Our hike began at half past seven in Ostravice. Early in the morning the sun was shining and not a single cloud in the sky. Weather forecast was mixed. In the beginning of the week the predicted weather supposed to be sunny and just last night a storm icon came up on my cell phone. A bit of rain hit us actually almost at the front door back home :-)

But back to that Ostravice! As it turned half past seven we begun our hike. It turned out that it wasn't that early as we thought. On the way up the red trail, which starts at the train station, we met a lot of people going down. Which means they had to go up at least around five / six - fools we thought :-) Which I don't think about them anymore, because I'm going to be the same fool ;-) Well, I'm not going to lie to you ... It is hard work. Somehow our physical condition wasn't that bad thanks to Nordic walking which we are doing almost every day, but this is a steep 8.5 km long red trail. On the way up you can see many beautiful panoramas, and we saw even polish and the slovakian part of the Beskydy Mountains. To walk back we choose the blue trail on the other side ridge (?) in the direction up to the city Frydlant  nad Ostravici. The signs promised a walk of 11.5 kilometers. Because it was meant to be just 'down' which is easy to handle ;-) While this was really only down but unfortunately 11.5 is still 11.5 km over Malenovice, Nova Ves down to Frydlant nad Ostravici. What comes at the end out of my first hike to Lysa Hora? Go up using the red trail, go down using the red trail as well :D I must say that I'm hooked and it's well worth it in these beautiful spring days!

Little bit about the mountain to be found here!

This is where it all begins - my sister & niece
