Walking on Dracula county

Walking in Dracula county

Walking in Bran county (know as Dracula county) is a very nice idea, if you know where to go. The most beautiful routes are traversing mountain villages of Magura, Pestera, Sirnea, Moeciu de Sus, Fundatica, Fundata and Simon, but not on marked routes, so is not easy to find your way. Even with a map is not easy. Not the last, walking near by or traversing near sheep farms can be delicate from sheep dog point of vewi. So be very carefully when you see some dogs. This are sheep dogs not pets! I can say that last week the weather was very nice for walk… (>>>)

Bucegi mountains traverse

Bucegi mountains traverse

Hello! You may find below some images from a 2 days tour, when I traverse Bucegi mountains with a group of students from Albert-Schweitzer-Gymnasium, from Erlangen town, from Germany. The original plan was that we will go up to Bucegi mountains by the cable car from Busteni, but our plans were ruined by the cable car station from Busteni who was broke again … So next morning we travel to Sinaia Cota 1400’s by 2 small buses, and here we were very lucky because we catch the cable care up to Cota 2000 from Sinaia, where we start our w… (>>>)

Climbing Moldoveanu peak, Romania

Climbing Moldoveanu peak, the highest peak in Romania

Climbing Moldoveanu peak, the highest peak in Romanian mountains can be a easy job, or a hard one! For the four of us (Sarah, Hannah, David and me, Iulian) I can say it was a easy job with a wet ending, however it was great! The tour began in Balea Lac, with one day warm up, climbing Buteanu peak, one of the peaks over 2500 meters high from Romanian mountains, that offers one of the best views from all Fagaras range, but of course, you have to be there on the right time, otherwise is possible to just eat your sandwich in the clouds! We “chose&… (>>>)

Randonnée dans les montagnes Fagaras

Climbing Moldoveanu peak in Fagaras mountains

3 days in Fagaras mountains, climbing Moldoveanu peak, with a nice group of 5 persons. First 2 days the weather was ok, we were lucky on the day when we climb Moldoveanu peak, we can admire the view from up there. On the last day we had to change our plan, and descent to Victoria on Arpasul Mare valley, instead to go back to Balea Lac to recover our cars, but as Thomas and Aurelien said even the descent on the valley was nice and interesting. Enjoy the photos! Iulian Cozma
