A guidebook to 34 days walks throughout upland Hungary from 4 - 24km in length (2.5 - 15 miles). The routes are set out by region. The highland areas are divided into two main regions: Northern Hungary (north and east of the Danube) including the Aggtelek karst, Borzsony, Matra, Bukk and Zemplen; and Transdanubia (west of the Danube) including the Bakony, Balaton Uplands, Buda Hills, Mecsek, Pilis and Vertes.
Most visitors are unaware of Hungary's secret highland landscape of rolling hills, high karst meadows, vineyards, crags, castles and villages. The volcanic mountains and limestone plateaus stretch in a chain from the Slovakian border to central-west and southern Hungary. The ancient trails of the country are now a network of walking paths with a good system of coloured waymarks. The guide gives a fascinating insight into the history and geography of the country, as well as supplying tips on walking in the countryside, and a list of useful words and phrases.
