Hiking in Romania, hiking in Transylvania, Fagaras mountains

Last week I’ve meet with Christa and Ole the beginning of the autumn and also the First end of it . It’s always like that during this time. The snow has to make it’s entry.

So we could see the earlier filled with tourist paths, now empty or with just a few people. The huts were the same, warm and friendly people up there. Being in the higher mountains was suddenly still. The weather was good for the autumn: clouds, fog, lower sun which generate longer shadows(better for picture taking) – everything was reminding us that it is Fall. The mood was r… (>>>)

Wandertour in Rumänien, Fagaras, Piatra Craiului und Bucegi Gebirge

Was macht man, wenn die Fotokamera, die man sehr oft mit viel Begeisterung benutzt, kaputt ist…. Am Anfang fühlt man sich verloren…

Ich habe eine Übung von einem Freund bekommen: Ich sollte bewusst und nur dem Handy fotografieren. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt habe ich Wenke getroffen. Wir sind zusammen in den Berge gewandert und sie hatte auch eine besondere Art zu fotografieren. Sie benutzt nur Dias. Das hat mich an alte Zeiten erinnert. Ebenso darüber nachzudenken war sehr gut. Mit Dias, ebenso mit Papierfilmen, musste man sich gut … (>>>)

Escursione in Transilvania, CAI Esperia

Caro Julian

abbiamo trascorso una fantastica settimana, tra le cime delle tue montagne e una full immersion nella cultura romena. E’ stata una esperienza piacevole e rilassante. Le escursioni ci hanno fatto scoprire posti incantevoli senza farci sentire la fatica del cammino. Abbiamo apprezzato anche il tour culturale che ci ha portato nelle città piccole e grandi dove ancora resistono tradizioni antiche. Il formaggio della malga, i piatti tipici cucinati secondo tradizione, come a casa della tua nonna, ci hanno fatto p… (>>>)

Photo tour in Fagaras Mountains and Medieval Transylvania, Romania

Photo tour in Fagaras Mountains and Medieval Transylvania

Our very first guests from Hong Kong arrived in Romania this summer in order to see the Fagaras Mountains and some of the historical sites in the South of Transylvania. While the trekking proved to be more demanding physically and technically than anticipated, the photo opportunities where always in abundance.

Great weather up in the mountains but also at the fortified churches in Cincsor and Cincu, at the old Cistercian Monastery in Carta or at the Sambata Orthodox Monaste… (>>>)

Skitouren in Rumänien, Skitouren in Karpaten, Bucegi und Fagaras Berge

Hallo lieber Iulian,

Ja nun bin ich bereits wieder eine Woche in Deutschland und ich denke fast unentwegt an die wunderbaren Tage die wir zusammen mit Dir in Rumänien verbringen durften. Wunderbar deshalb weil bereits im Vorfeld zu erkennen war das es sich bei Dir nicht um den „Normalguide“ handelt. Denn bereits dort habe ich erkannt, das Du wahnsinnig hilfsbereit und flexibel bist. Hatte ich doch fast den Eindruck Du machst Kopfstände für mich. Ja ich sollte wohl alles bekommen was ich mir wünsche – auch eben eine Tour nur für mich all… (>>>)

Week end hiking in Fagaras mountains

Middle of August was hot and busy! It was a weekend tour during one of the busiest weekend for those who choose to go by car up to Balea Lake! I mean, was very busy! I have to walk on the road for 3 km to arrive at the hut, because the latest 3-4 km from Transfagarasean highway was full with cars…

Anyway, out tour was far from the drivers and cars!

After the tour we enjoyed a dinner in Ucea de Sus village, as usual I can say 🙂

Enjoy the photos, Iulian, Brasov city, 12 October… (>>>)

Exploring Fagaras mountains

It was a tour like the tours have to be! I’m not saying that I not enjoy all my tours, because I really enjoy all my tours, but this one was special because of the tranquility of the Astird, Susanne and Holger, and not the last, because like all this summer, the weather was the right one for a hike in Fagaras mountains!

Our tour start from Ucea de Sus village, at the bottom of Fagaras mountains, with a hike of 6 1/2 hours to Podragu hut, where we arrived just with seconds before a heavy rain start, but as I said, we were lucky with the weather.  … (>>>)

Hiking vacation in Fagaras mountains and Ucea de Sus village

Omer, Ray, Or and Oran came to Romania form Israel to hike in the Fagaras Mountains. And some epic hiking they did: they were faced with harder physically and more challenging technically trails than they anticipated (or expected), but what they lacked in specific mountain skills (and gear) they more than compensated with determination, positive thinking and good humor. Always in the mood for singing, no matter how steep or rocky the mountain trails were, or how tired their legs were.We had our share of clouds but almost no rain (it on… (>>>)
