Of the numerous small streams whose waters compose the infant river, the most important is the B l Labe, or White Elbe. After plunging down the 60 metres (197 ft) of the Labsk vodop d, the latter stream unites with the steeply torrential Mal Labe, and thereafter the united stream of the Elbe pursues a southerly course, emerging from the mountain glens at and continuing on to Pardubice, where it turns sharply to the west. At Kol n some 43 kilometres (27 mi) further on, it bends gradually towards the north-west. At the village of K ran, a little above Brand s nad Labem it picks up the Jizera.

Thus augmented, and swollen into a stream 140 metres (459 ft) wide, the Elbe carves a path through the basaltic mass of the esk Stedoho, churning its way through a deep, narrow rocky gorge.
