Description


The limestone mountains of Bükk are located in Northeast Hungary. The central part in a high plateu, with several interesting karst formations: caves, cliffs and dolinas. As the whole area is under protection (Bükk National Park), activities like climbing are subject to permission of the NP authorities. In winter there is possibility to do ice-climbing on an artificial ice wall in Hámor.

This album will slowly be converted into an area page. Until then enjoy the pics and be patient...

It's up to you! :) They're very welcome here, it's not only for my pics. Have you got one of Vöröskõ-forrás when it's active?
