Potential of natural resources tourism of GORJ County

 

Gorj County’s mountain area provides for mountain lovers everything they could wish for: over 30 hiking trails – including Transalpina, the road with the highest altitude in the country – , 3 homologated mountaineering and climbing zones, caves, the most numerous potholes in the country – the deepest one has 150 m –, canyons, waterfalls, cycling and mountain biking circuits, rafting and body rafting circuits, off-road, enduro, ATV, paragliding and hang-gliding polygons, scuba diving and cave diving sites, ski slopes, ice waterfalls, ski touring circuits. Gorj Mountains – the southern slopes of Parâng and Vâlcan and part of Căpățânii, Godeanu and Mehedinți – have an exceptional tourism potential, certainly one of the most complete and diverse in the country. Due to massive investments made here in the last few years, Rânca will soon manage to obtain the status of the ski resort with the highest altitude in the country.
