Brasov Big Six in Winter

 

The Big Six in winter season is our special prize for peak baggers.

It is a unique circuit program created by us, meaning to reach the surrounding BIG SIX highest and most important peaks nearby Brasov.

In winter season, almost all peaks can be reached by skis or snowshoes in one long day, starting early morning from Brasov, if you are fit enough and know the safest/ shortest/fastest route.

The BIG SIX are:

  1. Tampa Peak (960m alt. D+ 420m), Postavaru Mts.;
  2. Magura Codlei (1.292m, D+ 665m), Persani Mts.;
  3. Postăvaru Peak (1.799m alt., D+ 780m ), Postavaru Mts. 
  4. Piatra Mare Peak (1.844m alt. D+ 1.200m), Piatra Mare Mts.
  5. Piscul Baciului/La Om Peak (2.239m alt., D+ 1.039m), Piatra Craiului Mts.
  6. Omu Peak (2.505m alt., D+ 1.800m), Bucegi Mts.

All peaks can be collected in six different days, some of them easier (including cable car), others harder, according to the chosen route.

The last two peaks from Bucegi and Piatra Craiului are the hardest and avalanche prone and must be reached only in good weather conditions.

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 :)”

Family walking in Brasov Mountains

Trekking. Bucegi

We are in full summer season and all mountain paths from Brasov mountains are full with mountain lovers.

These days we have been in Piatra Mare and Bucegi Mountain, with a lovely Spanish – Romanian family, willing to to do as much as possible.

The ”Șapte Scări” Canyon very close to Brasov is a popular objective, a place not to be missed. You just need a waterproof jacket for the canyon itself and do not go there in weekends!

Another day we went above 2.000m altitudine, on the high alpine plateau of Bucegi Mountains Natural Park. Here you can find many geological figures, including the most popular ”Babele” and ”Sfinx”, surrounded by legends and strange stories.

Regarding Bucegi plateau, must be said that despite the flat and easy terrain in full sunny days, the plateau is a huge trap for those who forget where they are: on a high and open plateau above 2.000m altitude!
