Pohorje (pronounced [ˈpoːxɔɾjɛ]), also known as the Pohorje Massif or the Pohorje Mountains (German: Bachergebirge, Bacherngebirge or often simply Bachern), is a densely wooded, low mountain range in northern Slovenia. The highland is roughly bounded by the triangle formed by the towns of Maribor (to the east), Dravograd (to the west) and Slovenske Konjice (to the south). It measures about 50 km (31 mi) from east to west and 30 km (19 mi) from north to south.
Pohorje is a wide mountain ridge that covers an area of over 1,000 km2 (390 sq mi) south of the Drava River. It is a thickly wooded range without prominent summits. Its highest elevations are Black Peak (Slovene: Črni Vrh, German: Schwarzkogel) 1,543 m (5,062 ft), the only slightly lower Big Mount Kopa (Velika Kopa), and Mount Rogla a little to the south, which rises to 1,517 m (4,977 ft). The region is bounded to the west by the Mislinja River and to the south by the Dravinja River. To the east the ridge descends near Maribor to the Ptuj Plain (Slovene: Ptujsko polje, German: Pettauer Feld).
