Not only is your sketch interesting for this trip. I have traveled here several times on Hungary and Slovak side trips, and the area is full of iconic walks, where special short walks should be planned. I'm going to address them at first.
The performance tour started on Sunday morning and the starting point was left immediately 7 hours and 50 minutes. It was 14 to 15 degrees, maybe a little thicker, cloudy, real power ride. The first five kilometers of the road go comfortably along the Danube and then to the Garam dam, up to the road bridge crossed to Garamkövesd (the name of Slovakia Kamenica nad Hronom, but all villages are in Hungary). in this region). From here, the path to the Kovácspataki rocks comes up, where you can see the view of the walkers, with only the panorama Danube Bend.
Helembai Mountains, also known as the Kovácspataki Mountains (Burda in Slovakia), is a small part of Börzsöny, which has pushed to Slovakia. In the west is bordered by the Garam, the Danube in the south, the Ipoly in the east. Nature reserve with special microclimate. It is southern and lower (395 m) from Slovakia.
If you are looking for the best part of the journey, you can reach Garamkövesd in a car, an hour and a half from Budapest. Last summer, we discovered an easy ride through five spectacular observation points in the Rocks Kovácspataki, which sailed nicely about 300 meters above the cliff face, almost immediately above the Danube.
Nearly all of them, Esztergom – are from a less well-known angle – the basilica rising at the top of the hill, and the Danube sauce line to see it very well. In the distance is the Gerecse line. The whole journey is 200 meters up the hill, and back and forth with six kilometers of walking, and then the most beautiful part is taken over by the same one. plan to reduce this weekend.
On this weekend, we didn't have time to go all the way out, just to the two most beautiful. This is the usual stress at the start of a performance journey, when everyone is worried that there will not be time. In the 40 Basilica, the time is 10 hours otherwise, and you have to go through 40 kilometers, which can be achieved at a very quiet pace, although we didn't know that.
From the last view, you can go in two directions towards Helemba: down to Danube and Kovácspatak resort, or by diverting more, turning around the north through the Great Valley to & # 39; r Chapel Ipeľ and then to the south of the village.
Bacon with wine-wine brandy
We, the other performance walkers, went inside the mountain. Beautiful glades and forest trails followed each other to the Ipoly shelter a little rampant, where, on the one hand, was a sealing point on the one hand and an energy filling station on the other. But what! I've been on a number of performing tours, but the pig meat fire and the skewed skewers haven't been staying at the refreshment spot, just like brandy and wine-wine pálinka. My heart was hurt for the onion bacon skewer, but I chose the frying pan with the brandy and the chocolate bar, because I hadn't got the trolley.
After filling, we continued to excel in Helembara in an excellent atmosphere. There, at the point of the seal, we knew that, if we wanted to get to the room ferry that started every hour at 40 o'clock, we would have to pull it in. (If we don't get there, then there's no problem, waiting is not counted in the period, but wants to sit for an hour on a performance tour?)
On the Ipoly dam we climbed to the Sároly bridge (railway), crossed over the river and reached Hungary again. Somehow, it seemed much more remote after the two villages in Slovakia. We sealed the train station racket, ate fast cola, and rushed to the ferry, which was reached 10 minutes before leaving.
If you are looking for a nice, daily but comfortable walk, a good choice is the 20 kilometer walk between Kovácspatak and Helembka Rocks between Szobány-Szob. From both rooms the railway is right to both directions, there are ten trains a day to Štúrovo (if someone had parked there with his car), and there are trains. going to the West Railway Station almost every hour.
We continued our journey and crossed the Danube waves to the side of Pilismaró. After the ferry station, Pilismaro was crossed in the village of Basaharc (two dozen buildings around), where in the valley of the Basaharci stream we found the red + sign to the saddle between the Long Mountain (320 m) and Vasarc (340m). ). On the path, I was looking at the last mountain to see something interesting that would justify the strange name, but I didn't see anything else outside the forest. At home I tried to look for it afterwards.
Iron face: Unfortunately, the mountain name doesn't have to do with the Iron Mascot or any Hungarian version of it, Basaharch. According to the settlement of Pilismarot (Eszter Lukácsné Varga), the part of the settlement was written for Bassarc for a long time, and many still in the village. The name Basaharcz was registered in 1906. The "shallow fighting" is more likely to be the result of folk etymology. At the beginning of the century, Mohály Dobozi's anti-Turkish battle and a heroic death lived in the village: After the Battle of Mohács in 1526, Turkey destroyed the central part of the country, arrived, and according to folk beliefs, Basaharc Dobozi and around Pilismaró were unequally fought with the Turks. In fact, Maro was wrong, but Pusztamaró was the real place at Gereche.
So, after the Iron Iron, the forest path started to descend into the lakes of Dyffryn Búbánat. But he first turned to Majal's source of the forest, which he had to mention about his clean and fine drinking water. I also found a table showing exactly two kilometers of what is known as Nagyfari well for our address. I've been a fan of strange names since I found the fancy in the Bacony, so I was looking forward to the next kilometers with great hopes.
Unfortunately, we went away from the five special tones in the Búbánat Valley. However, I have been doing this from the front, and I know that it is worth making a little trip here, starting in the valley, on the lake shore, going up on the Red + to; r Vasarch, and then go to the north to the sign Cold Red to the Cold Cross, then descending from there, going back to the lake.
The Cold Cross a very nice panoramic jump above the steep old quarry wall. It looks straight on the Danube rocks, Helembara and the Kovácspataki. The Iron Cross was consecrated on 3 May 1871 by János Eszter Simor, Archbishop Esztergom. The cross got its name from the fact that, during the May rounds, people were sweating by the time they arrived and were often cold in strong winds. According to the local folk tradition, the one that avoids the cross three times avoids colds. I mean we had checked my sentence with my sons in the fall, unfortunately they didn't always work.
Returning to the performance journey, not only is the religious life of the Cold Cross here. Towards the end of the Búbánat Valley, the road goes along an interesting building. Since 2008, the Community and the Original Light Zen (Buddhist) Church have been here. The valley of sadness seems to attract the followers of different religions.
Valley Bucket: This place could have been named after the battles with the Turks after the Mohács crisis. According to Monda, a Hungarian vehicle camp fleeing a woman was reported as a child. Since then, the area is known as Dyffryn Búbánat.
From the valley to the last mountain, the Iron Gate (404m) brings the Green sign up. And yes, on the way we hit the Nagyfari fountain which was predicted, which, to repent me, is called the name Fari. According to legend, Fari was a gentleman who was cut off by his impatient father when he caught romance with a shepherd in the neighborhood.
In the sweaty head that was rising we were waiting for a Vaskapu tourist cottage, and this terrace is probably the most beautiful view of Hungary's hut terrace. Unfortunately, the building is rather an accessible car pub, which is a little cottage style, although the guests were taken out, the accommodation was already good enough, as I said earlier in the year. my Big Pilot Costs.
At the checkout in the house, I sealed almost twice: first on the checklist, then on my home while goulash was used, but I managed to avoid the last with a clever gesture.
The shelter takes a long slope down to Esztergom. At the end of the journey, the rain turned sad. However, when going through the Esztergom-Párkány bridge, however, it was more like the pain of the legs that shaped the facial expression. It was a pleasure to get to the end and get the final seal.
Collection: The Basilica 40 was the most interesting performance I ever attended. I overcame my back with food and drink, refreshments, convenience stores, huts, and resources to compensate for lost energy, not anything. Of course, there is no need to organize it, and more bloody walkers can go around the 40-kilometer Basilica on their own, and those who want a smaller trip will find more of the smaller trips. in progress. (The annual Performance Performance Basilica also has a 20-kilometer and 55-kilometer version, which can be viewed on the organizer's website.) T
