  • If you are in Romania you have to do only three things: Eat Mici, drive the transfagarasan road and go to these mountains, it is amazing. Be sure that you are prepared because the trails are not easy and the weather can change rapidly. If you plan to sleep at a tent I recommend doing that at lacul avrig. Watch for the bears.

  • Must to be visited, this would be a mandatory place in live
  • One of the best places to visit in Romania if you love high mountains. Make sure you are phisically prepared and have the right gear, as weather can change rapidly, even in summer. In winter, go only after a thorough preparation.
