The Eastern Sudetes (Polish: Sudety Wschodnie, Czech: Východní Sudety or Jesenická oblast) are the Eastern part of the Sudetes mountains on the border of the Czech Republic and Poland.[1] They stretch from the Kłodzko Valley and the Nysa Kłodzka River in the west down to the Moravian Gate in the east,[2][3] leading to the Outer Western Carpathians.[4]
