Short escape to Rarau mountains
The Rarau Mountains together with Giumalau Massif are part of the Eastern Carpathians and offer you fantastic cycling opportunities. Though of moderate height (the Rarau-1,653 m and the Giumalau-1,857 m), the beauty of the landscape with karst relief, old forests and geological preserves and the numerous paths on easy slopes for hiking, attract many mountain lovers.
Rarau is the tourist symbol of Bucovina. Some of the most beautiful spots are: the Devils Mill Gorges, a geological and morphological preserve in the Rarau Mountains, impressive for the height of the walls; the Ladys Stones, splendid Gothic towers formed of alpine limestone; the Secular Forest from Slatioara, one of the oldest forests of Romania and even Europe, with some trees of 350-400 years old; Putna Valley Forest, a forest preserve under Giumalau Peak sheltering a rich fauna. Vatra Dornei (802 m) is a resort looking up to the high peaks of Rarau-Giumalau Mountains, situated at the confluence of the rivers Dorna and Bistrita, in one of the most beautiful depressions of the Eastern Carpathians - Tara Dornelor. It is well known for its mineral waters, as well as for its ski tracks. Furthermore, its cheese assortments are also said to be the best. Cycling enthusiasts will be delighted to find out that Rarau offers many forestry trails and marked footpaths, which offer great views of the amazing landscape.
