Horehron podolie is a basin basin belonging to the highlands of Slovakia; ranging from 390 to 1,000 m above sea level, the bottom of the summit reaches the highest altitude from all the Slovakian bowls in Besnik Telgárte – 1,000 meters. The highest place of the area is the peak of Dumbier at 2,043 m above sea level.

The height difference between the highest and lowest points causes great relief differentiation and the resulting differences in climatic and biogeographical characteristics.
