Szrenica

The peak, 1,362 m above sea level, lies in the western part of the Karkonosze, south of Szklarska Poreba.

At the top of the mountain, which, similarly to other hills in the area, is built of granite rock blocks, in 1922 a tourist shelter was established, operating to this day and now run by private owners. The top of Szrenica located several dozen meters above the ridge of the Karkonosze Mountains gives an amazing view of the Jelenia Góra Valley, the Jizera Mountains and part of the Polish and Czech Karkonosze. In the winter months, when the slopes of Szrenica and the Łabski Szczyt are covered with snow, tourists use the local slopes, supported by six ski lifts, operating as part of the SkiArena Szrenica sports center. Of course, you can use the two-section chairlift from Szklarska Poręba to the very top of Szrenica, also outside the ski season. The ascent to Szrenica from Szklarska Poręba along the red tourist trail (the Main Sudeten Trail) is a slightly more demanding option, but certainly not less scenic! The route goes through the Kamieńczyk Waterfall and Hala Szrenicka, from where you can enter Szrenica in two ways. Either following the red trail through Łąka Graniczna  and a short ascent along the black marked trail, or we make up a bit of the distance along the green trail to see the rock formation called Końskie Łby, and at the upper station of the cable car to the top of Szrenica, enter the black trail ( and then along cable lift).
