One of the narrower sides is topped by Mostná hora with a lookout tower, the opposite side slopes down into a narrow valley, above which it rises to 590 m above sea level. Cross Mountain.

Bílé stráně

A part of the slope of the higher peak, opposite the rock formation Kočka u Žitenic, is an eroded steep slope, where there are many interesting plants, such as the bluebell, the dark nine-flowered ninewort, the lesser bloodroot, the bolhoj, the bloodroot, the orange-cheeked stonecrop, etc. Much more significant, however, is the opposite side, the western side with a slight slope to the north. The outcropping, alluvial slope falling steeply to the Pokratická brook, in places with erosion and small landslides, exposed bedrock, shining white in the distance, which gave the locality its name, is one of the most valuable in North Bohemia in terms of the occurrence of rare and protected plants, especially of the sedges. On 30 March 1954, the 3.24 ha site was declared a protected area, one part of which has been protected since 1929. It belongs to the Natura 2000 sites of European importance.
