Adventures in the Zemplén Mountains

Tokaj and Nyíregyháza

The tourist trails located in the central section of the Zemplén Mountains – rich in fortresses and castles – occasionally traverse forests that appear untouched by man.

Of these, the most important one is the National Blue Trail, which stretches from the highest point of the Transdanubian region, Írott-kő, to Hollóháza, with a length of no less than 1100 km. It passes several lookout points, from which you should not miss the Nagy-Péter-mennykő and the Kis-Milic. If you get thirsty, you can quench your thirst from the numerous springs in the area.

The Sólyom Crag is a preferred location for rock climbers. From the peak, you might even spot the distant ruins of the Castle of Regéc. If you fancy mountain biking, you are once again on the right track: the Hungarian section of the Eurovelo 11 international cycle route runs through the area. Would you rather sit back comfortably to enjoy the receding countryside? The Pálháza Forest Railway runs along the valley of the Kemence Stream, traversing the most beautiful parts of the nature reserve.

A special geological formation: the tarn of Megyer-hegy

The tarn of Megyer-hegy is located just a few kilometres from Sárospatak, formed in the excavation pit of an abandoned millstone quarry. The deepest point of the lake is 6.5 metres, while the cliff walls loom 70 metres above the surface of the water. An educational trail leads to the top of the cliff walls, offering a vantage point from which you can admire the lake.

Visit one of the largest attractions in the Zemplén mountains: the Adventure Park

Head towards the Zemplén Adventure Park on Magas Hill above Sátoraljaújhely and test your mettle on Hungary’s longest bobsled course or slide down on the zip line that traverses chasms over 100 metres deep!
