The mountains with its ridge long only 26 km and with 32 valleys belong to the smallest mountain range in the world. All the more, they attract visitors mainly due to the dense concentration of the natural beauties in such a small area. Sharp, rocky shape of the mountains was caused by by glaciers thousands years ago. You can find typical morains, rock bars, terraces or giant saddlebows. The view from the foot of the mountains will captivate all peaks and saddlebows on the south side. Altogether 24 peaks are higher than 2 500 metres above the sea level. Those alternate with deep and narrow glacial valleys. As a result of the glacial times there is a large number of mountain tarns containig crystal clear water and you can find several waterfalls in the area. Flora in the mountains is well adapted to the harsh weather conditions. Among the most interesting living creatures belong chamois, marmots, bears, deer and others.
