Nicknamed the Bohemian Forest in Czech or named the Upper Palatine Forest, Cesky les is a mountainous region between the Czech Republic and Germany.

My suggestion:
For a beautiful view over the surrounding nature you can climb Mount Cerchov which reaches 1042 metres and has an observation tower at its summit.

The landscapes within the Bohemian Forest are amazing and are cannot really be found in Britain: plains and medium sized green mountains topped with pine forests and hosting a large fauna and flora where you particularly notice the relative absence of human population, The region, which however is not a national park, is abundant with an incredible number of pedestrian hiking paths or mountain biking tracks which allow you to explore the region in depth and discover its hidden corners.

I spent a weekend there, renting one of the several chalets located in the middle of nowhere. However despite the beauty of the region I recommend that during a stay in the Czech Republic you rather go to the Sumavas National Park which is, in my opinion, wilder, bigger and filled with more picturesque landscapes.
