English term or phrase: verdant karst mountains
994 km2/384 square miles of Croatia are in national parks, of which 235 km2/91 square miles are marine. The eight parks are all located in karst territory, but are characterized by three different kinds of scenery. Risnjak, Paklenica and Sjeverni Velebit Parks are in the verdant karst mountains, where erosion has created natural caves and strangely shaped promontories. Kornati, Mljet and Brijuni Parks are composed of islands. Plitvicka Jezera, which became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2000, and Krka are particularly well-endowed with rivers and waterfalls.

agree  Cándida Artime: Pero me parece más elegante: "las verdes montañas kársticas". Como "Las Verdes Colinas de África" de Hemingway. A propósito, ningún color específico es inherente a las rocas cársicas (como también se dice en español). El verde lo da la vegetación.

neutral  Ramon Soto: Estoy de acuerdo con Cándida. "Verdant" en este caso es "verdes" como adjetivo antes del sustantivo o, en otros casos, sería "reverdecidas", pues se refiere al color de la vegetación o los líquenes, no de las formaciones kársticas.
