    Kékes is Hungary's highest peak and the tallest mountain, rising 3,327 feet above sea level. The mountain is located in Haves County's Matre Range. Kékes is Hungary's third most popular tourist destination, with a plethora of hotels and ski slopes. On its peak, Kékes Mountain also houses the Kékesteto TV Tower. Because of its blue appearance, the mountain was given the name "Kékes." Blue is referred to as kek in Hungarian. The mountain is well-known for activities like skiing and road cycling. Kekes may be climbed from Gyongyos, which is the most popular but also the most challenging route. The mountain may also be reached through Parad.

    The mountains and woods were protected not to enable humanity "break free," but to become "shrines" of nature, places where people are merely visitors, and guests, and must act responsibly and in keeping with the spirit of the region. It is illegal to harvest plants, animals, natural formations, or rocks; they have true worth only in this region, thus "exporting" them makes no sense. Hikers have limited access to the strictly protected regions; only the marked paths can be utilized.

    Mountain ranges are breathtaking, with snow-capped peaks typically visible against the backdrop. The views from a mountain's summit (peak) are stunning. Because the landscape is often rocky, not much grows on mountains, although the air is often clean. The valleys, on the other hand, are more fruitful. Farmers typically build terraces where the mountains are steep, creating a succession of flat fields linked by stairs so that they may produce food even on slopes and hills.
