Nera Gorges – or Nera’s Canyon (Cheile Nerei) is a national park from Banat region in Romania, where some of the most beautiful romanian landscapes can be found – with lakes, rivers, gorges, suspended bridges, caves, old forests, tunnels and green hills.
Nera Park has a total area of 367 km2 and it extends for a distance of 22 km, between Anina and Locvei Mountains and along the river Nera. It includes seven nature reserves and here you can find the largest old-growth beech forests in Europe.
The park route starts in Sopotul Nou and ends near the massive Danube Canyon. The park can be crossed following the trail, and at one point the river has to be crossed straight through water (where water is just above ankles). Since the park is home to Horned Viper (small venomous snake which can be deadly), its recommended to wear appropriate foot wear.
If you camp overnight inside Nera Park, you can enjoy the firefly lights at night…
