48 Peaks Above 2000 Meters: DURMITOR NATIONAL PARK

A mountain and national park located in the northwest of Montenegro, Durmitor got its name from the Celtic words “dru mi tore”, meaning mountain full of water. And indeed, with 18 glacial lakes located at over 1,500 meters above sea level, which the locals call “the mountain eyes” because of its crystal clear water – Durmitor is exactly that… Plus, it’s a go-to destination for all extreme sports enthusiasts (rafting, hiking, canyoning, zipline…)
