Trekking with disabled children

trekkimg. Piatra Craiului

We spent the last few days in Piatra Craiului mountains, with a special group of French children with loco and neuromotor deficiencies.

Outdoor activities and trekking aren’t the most obviously accessible activities, but having a disability doesn’t rule you out from trying them.

Together, with a lot of patience and attention, on mountain trails where every tree root or stone represents a barrier, we managed to reach the main ridge of Piatra Craiului, in one day and a half.

We have climbed to its lowest point, in the ”Crapatura saddle”, a banality for most of those who have mountain experience, but one of the toughest “expeditions” these 9-13 year old children have had.

+ 1.000m/- 700m is not an easy walk even for adults!

Last year (2016) we published a trekking guidebook in Brasov mts. special for disabled ramblers and families with children. Everybody should enjoy the nature and Romanian Carpathians are a wonderful place!
