Exploring Transylvanian mountains, Bucegi and Piatra Craiului

Was the first snow from this year, but we were not scared about it. We were hiking in Bucegi mountains and Piatra Craiului national park, on snow, sun and beautiful weather.
They came from Luxembourg, being hiking on other different places before this trip. And, as almost always, Mike, Dan and their friends were surprised by our mountains, and not by our food. We were welcomed by Mircea and Doina Opris in Bucegi mountains, and by Alina from Simon mountains village.
Our trips went smooth and calm, enjoying the views, the landscape and all the nature  which surround us. The home made apple cake from Curmatura hut in Piatra Craiului and the fish with garlic sauce from  Alina, were two of the highlights of the trip!
Enjoy the photos,

We were a group of 6  friends from Luxembourg that originally were very reluctant to go hiking in Roumania.  But thanks to Julian, our guide, we finally had a wonderful time in the Carpathians Mountains.  Julian went out of his way to please us with our  different needs.  He was flexible enough with  any change of program and destination.  Thanks to him,  with  his  perfect knowledge of the country, we were able to fully admire the country-side, in all its beauty.  Not only were we pleasantly surprised  by the landscape, but  also the cleanliness of the different inns  and the good and amply  food  provided by  friendly people.  A lot of  huts/refuges  in the Alps  cannot compete  with those that we saw in Roumania.

So again, a very big thank you to Julian, and who knows, we may see again,
Mike, Dan and friends, Luxembourg –  September 2016
