Mountains Giumalau - Rarau

A trip in Rarau Mountains offers the traveller marvelous landscapes where the pine trees and spruces bring with them the charm of the North. Here, at dawn, the traveler has the opportunity to hear the symphony of nature, the song of the birds, accompanied by the rustle of pine forests. In the mists of evening, the valleys and wind-torn clouds, including emerging from time to time, silhouettes of Lady Stones, take you into the world of fairy tale. Nights sky with moon and stars, sunrises and sunsets, summer storms and winter blizzards bring in Rarau, each in their own way, mysterious and meditative beauty, all against a landscape that combines shades of gray-white limestone with dark green of coniferous forests and alpine meadows at the open, colorful embroidered with mountain flowers.
