A pleasant read about thru-hikes to put you in the hiking mood (even while you are lying on your sofa): Neuvěřitelné příhody z hor (Hikers’ Unbelievable Stories), Neuvěřitelně uvěřitelné příhody z hor (Hikers’ Unbelievably Believable Stories), and Lehce neuvěřitelné příhody z hor/ Zima je jen pocit (Hikers’ Slightly Unbelievable Stories/Being Cold is Just a Feeling).

HERE is a useful map showing shelters and other places to sleep. They vary in kind, quality and size, but they can come in handy.
If you are looking for up-to-date information such as where to sleep or get water, please ask other hikers on our Facebook page Stezka Českem.
