In the section between the Růžová hora cable car station and the turnoff to Traverz below the Sněžka peak, work continues on the repair of a busy tourist trail. Even there, tourists should not enter now.
“Now, in rainy weather, we expect a lower frequency of tourists and vehicles on the route Spálený Mlýn – bouda Jana – Růžohorky – Růžová hora. By the end of the week, there will be trucks that are difficult to avoid oncoming cars. At the same time, they will pass tourists. We would especially like to draw your attention to the scooter rental in Portášky and also to the clients of the cable cars, “Klimeš told ČTK.
The builders recommend completely avoiding this route in the coming days, or use the cable car to Portášky. The cable car should now also be given to tourists who head across Růžová hora to Sněžka and back.
“Two dumpers will be driving along the Růžová hora – Traverz route, exporting unsuitable and weighing new material. The sidewalk will be less passable for several days due to the undisclosed soil. It will probably be muddy in the rain, “said Klimeš.
The builders admitted that if work on the operation of the tourist trail were not possible, they would have to close the section completely. It is one of the main access routes to Sněžka. “After today, we will know more how the operation is manageable,” added Klimeš.
A limited passage on the hiking trail between Růžová hora and Traverse is there daily, including weekends, from 8:00 to 17:00. The regime of movement of people on the route with delays due to the transfer of material should apply until the second half of September.
The builders are repairing the tourist route between Růžová hora and Sněžka gradually, with the section from Traverse to the top they started last year and this year they completed the work. At the beginning of June this year, they continued with the reconstruction of the section from the cable car station on Růžová hora to Sněžka to Traverz.
Tourists who go to Sněžka from Pec pod Sněžkou have several options to get to the top of the mountain, for example Obří dolem, also via Výrovka and Luční bouda or by cable car from Pec through Růžová hora.
