The Bukk Mountains
Start point: East gate of the Bukk mountains (basically the bus terminal closeby :))
Most popular mountain trails have trail signs, they tell you which path to choose to hike along and in case you get lost you could use them to find your way back.
It took only about 90 minutes to climb up and down the mountain to arrive at Also Hamor.
This was the first cave we came across, while still on the mountain top.
Anna Barlang Cave
This was discovered in 1833 and is a natural limestone cave
This was just next to the Anna Barlang Cave
St Istvan Cave
Most remarkable of all the caves, really, so many stalactites and stalagmites, haha and you could make out a few figures from some of the structures, e.g Santa Claus if am not mistaken. It was quite clean, temperature was great, apparently the temperature of this cave remains at 10 degrees celsius all year round. It also serves as a therapeutic unit for asthma patients. They have tours every 30 minutes, the tour guide was sound and concise and she could interpret for us in English too. If you do have to wait, you could try some langos at the market place close by.
Oh yeah, beware of bats.
Its possible to go fishing or boating here.
The terraced garden (Hanging garden)
And thats it about my trip to Lilla Fured, its a great place to visit should you find yourself in Hungary. Its easy getting here, from Miskolc. So basically, you just need to get to Miskolc from whatever part of Hungary you are, it takes an hour by bus from Miskolc to LillaFured.
I went on this hiking trip with Interhelp desk, we had a great tour guide and the group company was awesome.
Let me know, what you think about the post, do you think I left something out?
