Moldoveanu peak in Fagaras mountains, is the highest peak in Romanian mountains, with a height of 2544 m.
Situated on the East part of Fagaras mountains, the peak is accessible from all possible directions, South, North, East and West, but the most spectacular climb of Moldoveanu peak start from West, from Podragu hut. Are few ways to arrive at Podragu hut, the “easy” but beautiful one, in on Arpasul Mare valley, and after 5-6 hours of hiking, Podragu lake and hut appear!
Most of the climbs of Moldoveanu peak are part of one week, or more, … (>>>)
Wir haben in diesem Sommer Rumänien als ein großartiges Urlaubsland für uns entdeckt und die Wanderung auf den Moldoveanu mit Iulian war für uns ein unvergessliches Highlight.
Schon bei der Kontaktaufnahme über die Homepage und bei der Abstimmung der Reise (Termin, Tour, Gepäck, Anreise, Bezahlung usw.) war der Kontakt super professionell, so dass wir von Anfang an wussten, dass wir in besten Händen sind.
Nachdem wir in Rumänien angekommen waren, haben wir erst einen Tag in Bukarest verbracht. Am darauffolgenden Tag haben wir d… (>>>)
It was Angus’s turn to organize a hiking trip for his friends in 2016, and following a tradition of exploring less popular destinations, he opted for a trip to Romania to hike up the highest peak in Fagaras mountains. Up till now they went in self-guided tours, but going for a guided tour in the Romanian Alps proved to be a really great idea. The weather turned quite bad up at more than 2000m, with low temperatures, first snow of the year and disturbing winds.
The initial plan, going from Sambata all the way to Balea Lac, had to be abando… (>>>)
On the last years we deal quite a lot with hikers or bikers from Benelux countries. Well, I can say from the flat countries of Benelux. We were warned by Sigge to be carefully with them, because they bike and hike flat. Sometime they were very good prepared for climbs on bikes or on hikes, or sometime they were well surprised when they have to climb 1000 m in one climb. But this may happen when you travel for an active vacation. And when this active vacation happen to be in Carpathian mountains, be sure that we can find 500 or 1000 meters to climb f… (>>>)
Hiking in Romania it is an unexpected experience for most of the visitors. And like this it was for the Belgium group of hikers from this August. As they are coming from a flat country like Belgium, cycling is the most common sport there. Also, they were good for hiking too, especially on long hikes witch involve a lot of climbing. Not the last, they were jealous when they saw Transfagarasean highway, a long asphalt road with climb 1500 meters, in central part of Fagaras mountains. Of course I told them that our Swedish friends climb it … (>>>)
Since my friends are still on the road, I want to say many thanks for hiking tour to Moldoveanu peak in the name of whole Lithuanian group.
It was really amazing trip, the organization and guiding was on the top level. Best wishes to Horia, hope we’ll meet some time in the future either on foot or mtb !
With kind regards,
Valdas Danielius & friends, Lithuania, August 2014… (>>>)
Ein unvergessliches Erlebnis war für uns die 3 Tagestour durchs Sambata Tal auf den Moldoveanu Gipfel. Es begann damit, dass Julian mit uns professionell für die Expedition einkaufen ging und wir den Inhalt unserer Rucksäcke überprüften. Zum Glück, denn wir konnten gemeinsam noch überflüssiges Gewicht reduzieren. Das war auch nötig, denn der erste Tag , Aufstieg von 1800 Höhenmetern bis zum Refugio auf dem Portita Vistei Sattel auf 2310 m war ganz schön anstrengend. Unvergessliche Ausblicke über weite Täler, Julian berich… (>>>)
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.
Thomas and his wife wer… (>>>)
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… (>>>)
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… (>>>)
