Zemplén Mountains or Tokaj Mountains ([ˈzɛmpleːn], [ˈtokaj]; Hungarian: Zempléni-hegység or Tokaji-hegység)[1] is a mountain range in Hungary.[2]

Its highest peak is the Nagy-Milic at 894 metres above sea level. The range is part of the North Hungarian Mountains within the Carpathian Mountains. Its steep peaks are the bases for many medieval stone castles, such as the castle of Sárospatak and Füzéri vár (Füzér Castle).
