As you ascend, notice how the nature around you changes. The foothills and valleys are suitable for broadleaved trees, especially beeches, and the higher you go the more hardy species, mainly spruce, appear. Higher up, on flat hill tops where cold winds prevail and the soil is often waterlogged, is a suitable climate for the dwarf pine, grasses and peat moss. The highest areas of the mountains, covered in stone, are good enough for grass tufts, mosses and lichens. Above all of this there is the mighty pyramid-shaped landmark of Mount Snezka, modelled by glaciers in the last glacial epoch. Route: T.G.M.
