Peca (Slovene) or Petzen (German) is the highest mountain of the Eastern Karavanke range, the second highest mountain of the Northern Karavanke, and the most eastern two-thousand-metre (over 6,562 ft) mountain of Slovenia. It is a mighty mountain with a characteristic shape of a tableland with rocky peaks protruding from it. The mountain borders the Mežica Valley and the Topla Valley to the south and east, and the Jaun Valley to the north, and is separated by a narrow valley of the Bela creek from Hochobir. Two thirds of the mountain lie in Austria, and one third in Slovenia. The mountain reaches the highest altitude at the mountain crest of Kordež Head (Slovene: Kordeževa Glava, Kordeschkopf, 2,125 metres or 6,972 feet). The border runs across it.
