Kékes is Hungary's highest mountain, in the Mátra range of Heves county. It is Hungary's third most popular tourist attraction, after Lake Balaton and the Danube, and has a number of hotels and skiing pistes. There is also a television mast at the summit.

The name Kékes is derived from the mountain's often bluish colour. In Hungarian, the word kék means 'blue', while kékes means implicitly 'bluish'.
