Cserepes-kő cave in Bükk Mountains, at the height of 823 meters, can be freely used as a cave lodge if you are a nature lover used to nomadic conditions.
Cserepes-kő cave is a karst cave in the heart of Bükk, along the Blue Trail. Its entrance is strengthened with woodened boards and has a door.
The hall is 6 meters long, 7 meters wide and 2.5 meters high, equipped with simple wooden beds suitable for six people. For overnight stays sleeping mats and warm sleeping bags are highly recommended.
The cave is winterised to some extent as an iron stove with a pile of chopped logs are available in the otherwise very chilly place. There is a small outdoor fire pit in the front of the cave, however, to make a dinner here, you need to bring everything else except wood, including lighting and cooking equipment, food and water supply (as the closest spring is a couple of kilometres away).
The cave entrance is a stamping location of the Blue Trail.
This cave has served as a dwelling not only for hikers and hunters, but earlier outlaws as well. Geologist Ottokár Kadić, founder of Hungarian speleology made the outline of the cave in 1929, using the cave for accommodation during his research. The excavations revealed the bones of a cave bear, remnants of pottery and even a tool. His cave map and description were published in 1944.
