The Tower(s) From Gate Peak
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Hello! No mushroom or train today, but semi-panoramic landscape (from 2 photos)... We're again in the Bükk mountains, this time on a rock / hill named "Gate Peak". It's on the Northern end of the Bükk Plateau (also known as Central Bükk), the sightseeing direction is North-West / West.|
About Bükk: the mountains aren't so very lofty, the highest peak is 959 meters above the sea level, at this moment we're now on 722. The "Plateau" is a 140 square kilometres, practically uninhabited area (except a very few ranches), part of the Bükk National Park. It isn't totally plain, its height varies from 650 to 950 meters, but nevertheless it's called "plateau". There are 2 parts of it: "Big" and "Small" plateau, and there's the deep valley of Garadna creek between them. Gate Peak is on the "Small Plateau". The closest inhabited place is the few-house ranch "Szentlélek".
The hills You see are really special. Although the white rock's named "Small Tower", there wasn't any tower on it ever. But on the other, "Dédes Tower" there was - how surprising - the tower of Dédes. It was an important fortress in the 14th-15th century, but when Turkish overran Hungary, it was blown up in 1567 and was never re-built again.

Szép tájkép, érdekes a keretezés. Esetleg több előteret is vehettél volna bele...
