The Jizerske Mountains are located in the north part of Czech republic.
Although they are small they are so beautiful. Come to visit and you will get caught by their magic. Streams with waterfalls and pools, beech forest, cold rocks and an ever changing mood.
The Jizera Mountains have a somewhat macabre charm; of peat bogs and peaty marshes, as well as the scrub pine woods, that coat its level ridges. This region also has massive beech forests that cover the precipitous slopes of the western and northern faces of the mountains. Bizarre asymmetrical granite bars, a rock labyrinth, rocking stones and a solitary rock tower loom above these slopes.
Man-made towers, built as lookout towers in the second half of the 19th and early 20th centuries, are also symbols of the Jizera Mountains and offer spectacular views. It is a wonderful destination for hikers, mountain bikers and cross-country skiers.
These mountains are relatively quite and the experience is concentrated, in the sense that a large quantity of natural wonders, such as extraordinary rocks, attractive waterfalls, peat bogs, mountain meadows, water basins, and far-ranging panoramas, are all amassed within a small area. There are plenty of marked hiking trails, lined with popular chalets, throughout the Jizera Mountains.
