Kékestető

Kékestető is a mountain pass at an elevation of 1.014m (3,327ft) above the sea level, located in the Mátra range of Heves county. It’s Hungary's highest mountain.

The pass lies 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) northeast of Gyöngyös and the Kékestető TV Tower stands at the summit. Kékestető TV Tower is a 176-metre (577 ft) tall multifunctional transmitter. Built in 1981, the tower is also an observation tower and a restaurant.

With the normal and forest roads, the Matra is in any case a favourable mountain-range for those who search after roads in forests, and who like the ascents. The experience of using this road is very impressive.
