Parang Mountains hiking map
Parang Mountains are located between the Jiu Valley to the west and Oltet and Lotru rivers to the east. To the north, they are bordered by the Sureanu Mountains and to the south by the East Jiu Valley, through Novaci and Baia de Fier depressions.
They are crossed by the highest alpine road in our country, the Transalpina, which goes up to 2,200 m, offering incredible panoramic views.
The Parang Mountains are the most rugged mountains in the group that stretches between Jiu, Strei and Olt rivers. The highest peak that reaches 2,519 m dominates the horizons of Gorj and Valcea surroundings and can be compared with the impressive fortress of the Retezat. The Parang consists of a peak higher than 2,500 meters, Parangul Mare (2,519 m), the fourth highest peak in Romania, three peaks over 2,400 meters: Gemanarea (2.426 m), Stoinita (2,421 m) and Carja (2,405 m), and approximately 15 peaks over 2,300 m in elevation.
There are many glacial lakes in the Parang: Rosiile, Calcescu, Mija, Verde lakes, etc. Lotru, Gilort and East Jiu rivers have their springs in the Parang. The richness of these mountains also lies in their endless forests, meadows, alpine areas, and wildlife.
