Ivanšcica (also called Ivancica, and Ivaneci-hegység in Hungarian) is the highest mountain of Hrvatsko Zagorje region. North slope of the mountain that descends into the valley of river Bednja has a very nice mountain terrain. It is very steep and has its special vegetation. Ivanšcica is about 30 km long and 9 Km wide. Its spreading from east to west and its a very nice example of chain type of mountains with its highest peak of 1060 meters. It can be considered as the farthest southeast end of the Alps. The mountain has a smaller western mass north to Krapina, with its highest elevation of 846 m. The west-east ridge of the mountain is the watershed between the valley of Drava in north and the valley of Sava in south.
Mountain belt above 300 meters is mainly covered by beech tree forests. In lower parts forests consist mainly of oak trees. For the first look this mountain looks pretty tame but its steep slopes and bare rocks tell a different story. Some parts of the mountain like stone reef of Legisicine, rocks under Belige and the steep slope near Belecgrad ancient ruins have climate that is pretty much like in the Alps.
With rich views, shade of dense forests, and the highest peak of northern Croatia Ivanšcica is mountain climbers’ paradaise. For a considerable part of Hungary this mountain is the nearest mountain with a peak over 1000 m, and it makes this mountain popular also for Hungarian hikers.
The peak of Ivanšcica is located 1060 meters above the sea level. It’s called Ivanšcica, too. It is the main destination of most hikers who come to visit Ivanšcica. Nearby the mountain hut "Pasariceva kuca" there are two lookout points. From the smaller one "Stricevo" you can see big area towards north, seeing Ivanec, Varaždin and the Mediumurje region.
On the highest spot on the mountain a lookout tower shaping an iron "Pyramid" is built. It is 10 meter high. On the same spot in 1893 mountaineers from Ivanec built a small wooden pyramid and next to it a small shelter, that was predecessor of today’s modern tower and huts.
Around the hut and the tower there are several wooden benches and tables for hundreds of mountaineers.
