Statutory city (Czech Republic)

In Czech politics, a statutory city is a municipal corporation, granted city status by Act of Parliament. It is more prestigious than the simple title město, which can be awarded by the cabinet and chair of the Chamber of Deputies to a municipality which applies for it. Statutory city status is ceremonial. Statutory cities are allowed to subdivide into self-governing boroughs with their own elected councils; as of 2016 only seven of total 25 statutory cities have done so. The capital of Prague, while not being de iure statutory city, is subdivided into similar self-governing boroughs; the model, derived from its common origin in Austria-Hungary, was renewed after the fall of communism by the Act on Municipalities in 1990, which established 13 statutory cities in addition to Prague, the capital city, a de facto statutory city. Unlike Austria, before districts of the Czech Republic were abolished only the three largest cities constituted a district okres on their own; as the prestige associated with statutory city status grew, 12 additional statutory cities were created by the Act on Municipalities in 2000 and its four amendments.

There are only two statutory cities, Havířov and Třinec, that are not seats of their eponymous districts. Since August 2018, there are 26 statutory cities, comprising all Czech cities over 40 thousand inhabitants

Dudipatsar Trail

The Dudipatsar Trail is an 18 km hiking trail in the Lulusar-Dudipatsar National Park of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, in northern Pakistan. The trail goes along a tributary of the Kunhar River called Poorbi Narr in the northern Kaghan Valley; the headwater for the particular tributary is the Dudipat Lake and the trail has a cumulative elevation gain of 640 metres. The average time taken to complete the trail is 5 to 8 hours; the trail is within the national park and passes through multiple life zones of the park, from lowland forests to alpine meadows of wildflowers. As the trail climbs up to the plateau, hikers see different wildlife in the region including marmots and different species of birds; the trail is of medium difficulty. The overall elevation gain isn't great but climbing at high altitude makes the trail more demanding. During the course of the trail, one encounters boulders, plateaus and streams; the trail and the surrounding mountains are used by cattle herders who set up summer homes in the area.

The main hiking season is mid-summer, dry and sunny. Hikers early in the season can see snow in the ravine; the plateau is marshy in places. There are a number of river crossings on the trail including one buggy bridge; the same river tributary is crossed on log bridges on a couple of locations. The trails starts at Besal, where there is a police check post. Lodging is available as well as space for setting up camp. Parking of vehicles is done at one's own risk but someone can be hired to look after vehicles for a day or two. There are three ways to hike the trail: One-day trek will not require a night stay. Going up to the lake can be done in about 3–5 hours while coming down it will take 3–4 hours. Two-day trek will require a night stay either at Dudipat Lake itself. Going up to the lake can take anywhere from 6 to 10 hours. Coming back is quicker, around 5–6 hours. Mules can be rented at Besal to carry luggage for the trek. A three-day trek will require two night stays at Dudipatsar. Hikers can reach the planned destination and after an overnight stay have a full day to tour the lake.

Again after a night stay they can get back easily. Guides are available at Besal for hike to Dudipatsar. Experienced hikers can wing it and go off on their own – remember to follow the water tributary as Dudipatsar is at the head. Mid-September, most of the herding flocks and inhabitants of Mullah ki Basti come down in preparation of winter. So if one plans to head towards Dudipat Lake at that time, it is necessary to take ample amount of food and preferably tents as no lodging is available for 9–10 km from the starting point; the makeshift hotels are shut down so no food is available. If one reaches Mullah ki Basti, abandoned stone houses are available to rest for the night. For the two day trek option, a night stay can be done either at Dudipat Lake. You have the option of either carrying along your camping gear or alternatively using the facilities at the makeshift hotel at Mulla ki Basti. Price for food runs at twice of that at Besal.
