Via ferrata in Eastern Carpathians

via ferrata. Hasmas

First time in Romania… first time on via ferrata… and more to come, from now on!

Few days ago we made a lovely trip in Eastern Carpathians (Hasmas Mts.) with a very enjoyable couple from Israel looking for outdoor adventure in Carpathians.

We done two beautiful via ferrata routes nearby Lacu Rosu area (Bicaz Gorges), both ranked around C-D with 150-200m in elevation.

As a result…

”Thanks a lot for the pictures! They are really beautiful and it’s a great memory of our 2 days trip with you. Thank you so much for that!!!! We really enjoyed it. We’ll contact you for our next trip in Romania :)”

Trekking in wilderness. Vrancea Mountains

Vrancea. Trekking

Eastern Carpathians are only 1.5 – 2 hours away from Brașov, but the beautiful high mountains surrounding this city are putting lower mountains in a big shadow.

Last week we did a lovely trek in Vrancea Mountains, where the highest peak is lower 2.000m altitudine. But the mountains are fabulous, a wild place where you can still feel the silent solitude, lost in the forest with bears, wolfs and many foxes.

We did a nice walk along Tisita canyon, with its former forest train tunnels and also we ascended along the most ”alpine” ridge of Vrancea Mountains, ending our tour back in a small canyon called ”Strâmtura” with  its strange geological colors.

After we saw many footprints, during our trek we met two young bears (Brown Bear – Ursus Arctos). Unfortunately, there were too shy to capture them on good pictures.

Snowshoeing in Eastern Carpathians

snowshoeing. Harghita

Romanian Eastern Carpathians starts from Brasov to east, ending up in the north, at the border with Ukraine.

Less rocky compared with the famous Southern Carpathians, the Eastern range offers great winter adventures for those looking for remote areas with poor way marking system, where outdoor navigation (map and compass) is a must.

Recently we did some lovely snowshoeing tours in Harghita Mountains, the area with Romanian Hungarian native speakers, with their specific culture and traditions.

We found deep snow and fantastic forests, as usual!
