...through the Tara gorge an Dumitor mountains...

Day 8...


We stayed the night in the National Park for a very low price: 3€
But we discovered there were no showers and the old style toiletts.
For 11€ we could have rented a room with real toiletts and a shower....
...you always know better afterwards....

After 8hrs of sleep in total silence I was ready for action at 0600h and went for some sunrise photos.




...we had our personal watchdog who was lying in front of our tents in the morning....








...a good day starts with a good breakfast...




... the beginning of the Tara canyon...

a few words to the Tara ....
The Tara canyon is the second longest canyon in the world, so they say. Grand Canyon being the longest...
When you read that over and over again you get very excited about this gorge.
I have seen a few canyons across the world and excpeted to see something like the "Grand Canyon du Verdon" in France, which is quite something for motorbikers.

But unfortunatly I was rather disapointed about this canyon. Its more like a narrow valley than a canyon.
I expect a canyon to have walls rising vertically into the sky etc.


















...riding through the Tara canyon...
















...this gorge if very popular for rafting...


...the Durdevica Tara Bridge...










...Zabljak...


...Durmitor mountains...








...going through the Durmtitor mountains,following a fantasic pass...












..."SEDLO" is not the name of the pass, although often refered to as the "Sedlo Pass", its the croatian word for saddle.Maybe its called the Saddle Pass or Saddle saddle...


...wonderful roads with no traffic...




































...you know the saying: Eating is the sex of the elder...






...the Piva lake and the canyon - more spectacular than the Tara gorge












...officially left Montenegro and entered Bosnia & Herzegovina again to get back to Croatia to our favorite campsite with a real toilette...







the route of the day....


stay tuned for day 9 ...
