Eldar, when it comes to shear stark massive mountains it's hard to beat the region between Jasper and Banff in the Canadian Rockies. Then moving further west into BC, for example around Revelstoke, the climate gets much moister and there are streams running down mountainsides literally everywhere and the ground is just one massive bed of moss with thousands of mushrooms and the like. Illecillewaet is not far from Relelstoke.
For anyone who might be interested here is one of the hiking trails up the mountain at Illecillewaet - vegetation, lake at the top and finally the summit.
I could be happy hiking in places like this for the rest of my days, well, assuming it's not raining.
Eldar, from what I've seen, your neck of the woods is spectacular too.
