Photographer's Note

One panorama of the Rarau mountains. The building who you see is the hotel at 1510m altitudine. The picture was made from the top of the rocks at 1610m.
"The Rarau and Giumalau are two massifs close to each other, situated in the north of Bistrita valley. 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 geologic 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 Devil's Mill Gorges, a geological and morphological preserve in the Rarau Mountain, impressive for the height of the walls; the Lady's 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."
