It is the highest peak of the Celoica mountain range, at 2062 meters above the sea level. Due to tectonic movements, the height of this peak and surrounding mountains continues to rise. This is actually why Macedonia experiences moderate earthquakes around this region. From the top of this peak it is possible to view many surrounding cities: Gostivar, Kičevo, Tetovo, and nearby villages. The main springs of the Treska river are placed within the Celoica mountain range. ** Route M3: Blace - Skopje ** Route M4: Skopje – Kičevo – Ohrid ** Route M5: Ohrid – Bitola image 50px (Image:Flag_map_of_the_Republic_of_Macedonia.svg) list1 Berovo

On August 2, 1903, the Christian citizens of Kičevo participated in the Ilinden Uprising, led by Arso Vojvoda and Yordan Piperkata.

During World War II, Kičevo was occupied by forces from Fascist Italy (History of Italy as a monarchy and in the World Wars). On September 9, 1943 Albanian (Albanians) and Macedonian (Macedonians (ethnic group)) partisan units disarmed the Italian garrison and took control of the city.
