Information about the Rodnei Mountains:
Mountains (Romanian: Munţii Rodnei, Hungarian: Radnai-havasok) are a
subdivision of the Eastern Carpathians in Northern Romania. The name
comes from the nearby Rodna Veche village.
The Rodna Mountains
have one of the longest continuous ridges in Romania, with over 50 km
from west to east. The two highest points are Pietrosul Rodnei and Ineu
peaks, with 2,303 and 2,279 meters respectively.
are most suited for hiking in summer and skiing in winter, and are
especially famous for having snow late into the summer months (skiing is
possible well into June, sometimes even July).
While the ridge
itself poses no difficulties, the challenge is the massive length of it,
and the absence of drinkable water (except for a few puddles that are
usually dry). A complete hike on the Rodnei main ridge takes between 3
and 5 days, depending on the weather and the endurance of the hiker.
massif has some caves, notable among them being "Izvorul Tăuşoarelor",
the deepest cave in Romania, going about 479 metres beneath the surface
and "Jgheabul lui Zalion", 242 metres deep.
