Mountains Lotru

The Lotru Mountains (Munții Lotru in Romanian) form a ridge about 50 kilometres long. The highest elevations of the mountain range are alpine meadows and the peaks are largely flat and level. Therefore, the slopes of the mountains are often used by sheep herders. These mountains still resist tourists and are thus ideal for lone travellers.
