Climbing Mount Moldoveanu. A great experience with Iulian on 18th&19th of June 2011

We tried to climb Mount Moldoveanu by mid-October 2010 but we were blocked by the first snow storm of the season.Therefore we decided to give it another try this June,Once more Iulian had organized everything perfect.

We started by 8 hours hike from Balea lake to Podragu hut before to do the final climb on Sunday 19th.The weather was overall good and we reached the top after 3,5 hours.The view was superb and on the way back we had the opportunity to watch the rhododendrons that are blossoming at this time of the year.Iulian knows the Fagaras mountains very well and his explanations always make the hiking more interesting.The personal touch was the end of the trip in his grandmother house in Ucea de Sus were we have shared a cake with the family for his birthday.It was also the opportunity to meet people of the village wearing their traditional clothes on Sunday.
