Maybe the mountains are the same as last weekend, but the weather, the clouds and the hikers make the difference as always. This weekend, 26-27 November, I was traversing Bucegi mountains with Beth, Carmen, Marc and Catalin, on a easier but challenging route. We hiked on the plateau of Bucegi mountains from Babele cable car station to Omu peak the highest peak in Bucegi mountains, enjoying the views which surround us wherever we look, because the weather was one more time on our side.
I left Brasov early morning, the clouds were the same … (>>>)
I meet Mike almost three years ago, when he asked me for another challenging tour in Romanian mountains, climbing Moldoveanu peak, our highest peak, in just two days. Usually when somebody ask about this type of tour, are two options: very well prepared for hiking, or didn’t know exactly how are Fagaras mountains. Well, Mike do not disappoint me, and he’s part of the first option, very well prepared for hiking, in fact he’s a Marathon runner. So three years ago we were just fast and happy (not furious like the movie) t… (>>>)
Was a beautiful Monday morning when we start our walk on the hills of Bran village. I hiked on this hills few weeks ago with Beth and Marc, and it was almost winter. But the sunny and cold days of Autumn came back, and we were able to enjoy a walk on a sunny day, having the opportunity too see all the mountains and nature around us. Bucegi and Piatra Craiului mountains offer us some of the best opportunities to take nice pictures, and of course we didn’t miss them.
Enjoy the photos,

A short but nice hiking tour in Bucegi mountains, with a group of men from Holland. They choose to meet for a hiking tour in Romania, and they came from all over the world, from Amsterdam, from Munich and from … Shanghai. We had good weather, and this was a good part, because they enjoy the tour.
First night we stayed in Brasov city, enjoying a good dinner and visiting the city. Next day we climbed Omu peak in Bucegi mountains, and we hiked to Ialomita valley on the border between Austro – Hungarian empire and Romania, Drumul Gra… (>>>)
End of June offer the possibility to enjoy a tour through Transylvania, Maramures and Bucovina counties, Dracula castle, wooden churches and painted monasteries. It was a long tour, almost 2 weeks, and during those two weeks weather was quite challenging. From high temperatures in Bucegi mountain to zero Celsius and snow up in Fagaras mountains, and good weather for walking in Maramures county, we had them all. Was a tour for those type of persons who are really interested to see as much they can during those two weeks, and they enjoy… (>>>)
June 2010 was a awkward summer month in Romania, with plenty of rain and cold weather. Not for Sonia and Scott, who spent about two weeks in the mountains, at the painted monasteries in Bucovina and in the Danube Delta.
We trekked through the Bucegi mountains, around Bran, Poarta, Simon, Moeciu, Fundata mountain villages and we enjoyed really good weather. It only rained over night, when we were safe back at our pension in Poarta (great food, brilliant place, quiet and relaxing place to rest after a long walking day) or at Padina.
After a … (>>>)
Wandern durch das Märchenreich,
In der Zeit von 20 und 22 Juni wir haben zusamen mit Max und Birgit eine Tour in den Bran Gebiet. Diese Platzt ist ein der meist pittoresk in Rumänien durch die Bucegi und Königstein Gebirge, Bran Schloss, durch die traditionelle Bergdörfer (Bran, Poarta, Simon, Moeciu) und Hofs. Doch, dieses mal in Zusammenhang mit dem guten Wetter und die Weiden ganz mit Blumen, dieser Ort war wie Märchenreich. Wie es war duch so ein Landschaft zu wandern können Sie in die Photos schauen.
Gruße aus Rumänien,
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… (>>>)
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… (>>>)
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… (>>>)
