Winter hiking in South West of Transylvania

Greetings!
at the begin of January 2011, together with 4 young persons, I did a nice winter hike on the hills situated between Piatra Craiului and Bucegi mountains, on South East part of Transylvania.
They celebrate the New Year’s Eve in Bucharest, then travel to Predeal and Brasov, and were start our tour on morning of  4th of January. Our tour was a easy walking and hiking tour, but quite long I can say, because daily we cover a distance of approximate 20 km, from one location to other.

And like this, we start from Zarnesti town going up to Curmatura chalet, ending to Folea gueshouse in Pestera village, walking from Pestera village to Sirnea, Ciocanu and Fundatica villages, ending in Moeciu de Sus village, and so on, until Bran castle.

As you may see on the pictures, we were lucky with the weather! But even if was quite sunny days and evenings, the temperatures were all the time below O Celsius, and sometime were -12 Celsius… But the warm rooms, good food, and warm drinks keeps us alive for the next day of winter adventure!

Kind regards from Brasov,
Iulian Cozma – January 2011

Testimonial:

Iulian hat mit uns zusammen eine individuelle Tour zusammengestellt die das sportlich-anspruchsvolle Wandern durch die wunderschöne Winterlandschaft in den Bergen mit vielen interessanten geschichtlichen Anekdoten optimal kombiniert hat. Eine Sonnenfinsternis, Kühe melken, frische Bärenspuren, unvergessliche Bergpanoramen im Abendlicht, Schweiß und viel Spaß waren inklusive!
Vielen Dank für die tollen Erlebnisse.
