I have read somewhere that the name could be of Latin origin (most likely Dalmatian or possibly Italian or Vlach/Romanian) and it would be translated as "Sleeping" (i.e. "the Sleeping Mountain"). bogdan | Talk 20:03, 16 September 2005 (UTC)

  • The sentence of celtic origin (no citation) of the name should be deleted.--Deguef (talk) 06:53, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

I cannot agree fully agree with sentence in "National park" chapter that says: "80 km long and 1,300 m deep Tara River Canyon, a part of the National park Durmitor, is second largest in the world, just behind Grand Canyon in Arizona." ... we should not forget about http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yarlung_Zangbo_Grand_Canyon, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copper_Canyon and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kali_Gandaki_Gorge, which are all larger (deeper and [at least in case of Yarlung] also longer). 77.38.44.85 (talk) 12:50, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
