Looking for splendid views? Aiming at climbing to the top, hiking to lonely places, enjoying the feeling of breathing fresh air? Then go hiking in the Romanian Carpathians! In summer 2003, we enjoyed hiking the ridge trail in the Fagaras mountains. During the 5-day hike, we could let float our mind, forget the daily routine and of course, we got a lot of new impressions. Although the ridge hike may not be underestimated we mastered all challenges without troubles – not least because we could always count on our mountain guide Iulian Cozma. With his very professional attitude, competence and humor he made the trip unforgettable for us. So, if you are looking for a demanding but fulfilling hiking tour away from worn-out paths, do not hesitate to go for a trip with Iulian! And if you are lucky, you might even have the chance to meet ‘muzumuzu’. Iulian – thank you very much for being such a professional guide and caring friend!
