Following the Moracha & Tara Gorges into the mountains

Anyone who likes a road trip with deep, precipitous gorges, huge, towering trees and winding narrow roads should do this drive. Just like the limestone country of the Cevenne & Ardeche in France.

First stop is the peace of Moracha monastery.

A stop for fresh fruit – the family get their produce out for us tourists.

A stop for lunch on the River Tara. This bridge at one point in time was the longest bridge in Europe – until they built a longer one somewhere else!!

A fun thing to do is the zip wire across the gorge. This is how to do it.

This is how not to do it – hang in the middle and require rescue

From here we travel up to 1400 metres and the ski area and another national park. A walk around the glacial lake clears the head in the cool clear atmosphere.
