Tres días increíbles , caminando por las montañas nevadas de la aldea de Bran hasta Moeciu de Sus, y visitando la encantadora ciudad de Brasov, Iulian ha sido un gran cicerone, y hemos descubierto gracias a él, la mas genuina forma de vivir en las montañas , parece que el tiempo se ha parado en estas pequeñas aldeas, todo ello acompañado por las comidas y las bebidas típicas … muchas gracias también por el reportaje fotográfico : )
Una experiencia absolutamente recomendable no solo por la belleza de los paisajes de Rumania , sino ta… (>>>)
Second snow falling from this Autumn 🙂
I can say that the area of Moeciu de Sus – Poarta – Simon mountain villages is one of my favorite area for walking. First of all because of his unique natural beauty, and not the last because of the photo opportunities what this area keep to offer!
We arrived on Friday evening at mrs. Jebac house from Poarta village, enjoying the tasty food what she cook for us. This time us is meaning, Beth and Marc, and Carmen and Catalin.
Saturday we did a classic wak, from Simon village to Moeciu de Sus, unf… (>>>)
usually in middle of April we expect to have nice weather, green fields and at least some flowers. But in middle of April 2011 was exactly the opposite! In lower parts of Romania was raining, and on upper parts was snowing! I mean a lot of snow! On the hills of Bran county where we did our 4 days tour, the snow was around 1 meter …. But even like this the participants enjoyed the trip!
Elk jaar loopt onze groep van 7 vrienden ergens in de bergen een hiking-tocht. In April 2011 hebben we gelopen … (>>>)
well, I can say that I just finished my ski touring season with a nice and interesting tour, especially for my guests, which this time came from Switzerland!
Weather was so and so, I mean on some days was really foggy and we can’t reach Omu peak from Bucegi mountains, or windy, but in Fagaras mountains the weather and the snow were ok, and we enjoy our tours.
Probably the most interesting part for my guest was, as always on my tours, the visits in Ucea de Sus village. I say visits because we ‘been there two times during o… (>>>)
Traveling on this days for skiing or hiking is more than traveling, is also a opportunity to know a different country, different people, find more about a different culture and why not to enjoy a active holiday in a ex-communist country 🙂
At least these are most of the reasons for the people from country like Switzerland, Italy or Germany, because they are quite close to The Alps. BUT. I’ve been in Swiss Alps for ski touring 2 times, last time in February 2011, and was great, but know I understand what persons who are traveling in Romanian Ca… (>>>)
Well, winter is here, winter was here! I mean last week, 5-12 March 2011, was really winter, with strong winds, below zero temperatures and not the last good snow! Now the temperatures are over zero, but is still OK.
Our tour start in Bucegi mountains, where the weather was bad but good for skiing, if is possible to say something like this! Visibility was not great, BUT the snow was more than great! We have between 30-40 cm of fresh snow, and we enjoyed very much some runs from Tataru peak and Strungile mici peak, down to Cabana Padina, where w… (>>>)
Last week,12-20 February, we have been with Michael and Christian(from Germany) in Fagaras and Bucegi Mountains.
At the beginning of the tour we had a vey nice cold weather with a bit less snow then we would have liked. We start in Sambata Valley from the Salvamont hut and went in Fereastra Mare a Sambetei walking over and between a lot of icy mushrooms and wind slabs. Up there we ahead to Urlea peak but instead doing the long traverse in not the best conditions for split boards we decide to have some fun riding in the Bandei Bowl. T… (>>>)
well, I can say that was a great weekend for a ski tour in Bucegi mountains, and it was. Even if at 7 AM were -25 Celsius, during the day was just nice to be outside on snow. And was enough snow, even that on the main ski resorts from Romania snow is still missing!
Saturday I was with 2 friends skiing on West part of Bucegi mountains, and we really enjoy this!
Sunday morning I went up to Bucegi plateau to meet my wife Rosana, and Mihai and Alex went to Omu peak to ski down on Cerbului valley. They had a nice ski descent on Cerbului valley towa… (>>>)
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 goin… (>>>)
O che bello! – mountain biking in Romania
One year after spending a ski-touring week in the Bucegi and Făgăraş, Mario kept his promise of returning to the Romanian mountains. Together with five friends from Switzerland and Italy, this time he came for six days of pedaling on the dirt roads and trails of the mountains near the city of Braşov.
Combining my long experience in organizing tours for mountaineers from all over the world with Horia’s comprehensive knowledge of the mountain biking routes around Braşov, we put tog… (>>>)
