Mit Gabi und Michael haben wir versucht immer zwischen den Regenwolken zu wandern und uns ist es gelungen. Obwohl schlechtes Wetter angekündigt wurde, haben wir das Glück auf unserer Seite gehabt und wir sind eigentlich trocken bis zum Ende unserer Tour geblieben. Im Bucegi-Gebirge nach dem langen Aufstieg durch das Cerbului Tal haben wir den Omu-Gipfel erreicht und dann sind wir weiter nach Padina gewandert bei wunderschoenem Wetter. In Padina Nea Opris und Tanti Doina haben uns mit leckerem Essen verwöhnt. Am zweiten Tag haben … (>>>)
When the going gets tough, the tough get going
Almost 30 years after a first attempt at doing the Fagaras mountains main ridge, Thomas and his wife came to Romania this July to finish the business. That first try ended shortly after starting, because of an unexpected snow. This time the weather was much better, with lots of sun and mild temperatures. The trek proved to be demanding non-the-less, with lots of technical ascents and descents, with long hours of marching along trails sometimes pretty exposed ridges.

Eileen came from Switzerland to Romania tracking back family roots and trails. Her grandfather started his love affair with the mountains in Fagaras, in Sambata and Vistisoarea area, following his passion later in life up in the Swiss mountains. Eileen wanted to see with her own eyes where it all began, so, together with her friend Yves, they asked us to plan a ten days trekking tour in Romania.
We started near Brasov, in Piatra Mare, and made our way towards Fagaras via Bucegi and Piatra Craiului. All along the way we visited sheep farms… (>>>)
Intotdeauna mi-am dorit sa pot sa scriu un raport de tura in limba Romana! Si din pacate pana acum nu am avut aceasta sansa. De ce? Pentru ca in cei 14 ani de cand merg pe munte ca si ghid, am organizat ture doar pentru straini care vin sa vada Romania dincolo de tabloide, de stiri de televiziune, vin sa vada o Romanie reala, si de ce nu, o Romanie frumoasa. Acum a fost un grup mixt, Suedezo – Roman, 5 la 2 ca sa zic asa, adica 5 Suedezi pusi pe shotii tot timpul, nu ca Romancele ar fi fost mai calme! No way! Dor ca si-au dat drumu’ mai incet, … (>>>)

Last year, on July 2010, I hiked with Christian from Stuttgart on the Fagaras main ridge, from far East to Podragu hut, on Central part of Fagaras mountains. We did this hike camping on a tent on the main ridge of Fagaras for 3 days. I can say the weather was not as we expected, was raining all the time, but even like this we climbed Moldoveanu peak, and we enjoy some tough hikes.
This year, on July 2011, Christian return to his favorite mountains, Fagaras mountains, for another challenging tour. This time we had great weather. On this year hik… (>>>)
At middle of September I was guiding Trudy and John on Fagaras mountains, for a classic tour in Transylvanian Alps: climbing the top three highest peaks, Moldoveanu 2544 m, Negoiu 2535 m and Vistea Mare 2527 m high.
They came here from Virginia, USA, to visit a friend in a small village near Turda, and they have some days free for a tour! We were very lucky with the weather, and our tour goes very well, as you may see on the photos below!
