  • We did a walking holiday in the park in February (there was lots of snow). The paths and walks were amazing, as were the views (when we had them). The trails were not cleared which made it all the better to use our snowshoes.
  • Wonderful view at this time of the year! Still remain some snow/ice, so you need to be carefull with your steps, high boots recommanded (for all ages!). No problem taking dogs along, but make sure to tigh it to you, because of other dogs and wild animals in the woods. There is a part of walking in some streams, so make sure you have a pair of socks and dry shoes for change.
  • Visited Plaiul Foii. Everyone must go there at least one time in lifr. Wonderful view, excelent for walking with kids, cycling or hiking to Piatra Craiului. In April we found snowdrops. Cabana Plaiul Foii is not the cheapest, but the quality is very high. Even the toilets are clean and new. This applies to most of the cabins in the area.
  • For me it is special, I have been there 3 times and I want to come again and again :) First, the mountain is made of calcar, and it is white, it has a very special look in the summer sunny days. Forests are virgin, there is a small place where they use to cut them down and it remained a monument of human ignorance over natural beauty. The places to hide in case of storm or to spend the night in are not very clean cause of the tourists, some do clean after others, but them other ignorants come and spread trash all over the place :/ Here grows one unique flower, one that in the whole world can't be found. Legend says that here is the sleep place of Gebeleizis, the God of Thunder in Dacian hystory, known also as Zamolxis.
  • Really beautiful area, a place where you can connect with the nature, good for hikes and climbing rocks.
