Highlights

 
     

    Certainly two of the most renown peaks in the Alps are Mont Blanc and Matterhorn. In this occasion, I propose you to ascend them both in a week. 

    The first 3 days will be dedicated to Mont Blanc (4810m). It is the highest peak in the Alps and (not only in my opinion) one of the most beautiful mountains in the world. We will do the ascent either by the Gouter route (classic route) or by the 3 Monts traverse (Mont Tacul, Mont Maudit, Mont Blanc). The final decision will depend on the conditions of the terrain as well as the weather.

    For this task you’ll need to have a very good fitness level and some previous acclimatization. Plus you’ll need to be comfortable with some mountaineering techniques, such as walking in crampons or using ice axe. 

    Then we will have a well-deserved resting day, during which we will transfer to Zermatt or Cervinia, depending on which route we will use to climb the next peak.

    And the ascent of Matterhorn (4487m) will take our last 3 days. Matterhorn, located at the border between Switzerland and Italy, is the symbol of Switzerland, a truly stunning mountain. Again, depending on the terrain conditions and the weather, there are two possible routes that we can take, both equally exciting. It will be either via the Lion ridge (Italian normal route) or via the Hornli ridge (Swiss normal route).

    As this is a demanding climbing adventure, it is important to be in good physical shape and to have mountaineering experience. If you are not sure whether you have the required level, feel free to ask me.

    Thinking of completing the ascent of Mont Blanc and Matterhorn next season? Then don’t hesitate to send me a request! It will be a true pleasure to guide you up there.

    About the Guide

     
     

    I’m an IFMGA mountain guide, a geographer and a passionate alpinist and climber.

    I started going in the mountains as a child, at first very close to my home, in the Romanian Carpathians. In these mountains I discovered the passion for outdoor activities and climbing. It was not long until I started discovering other mountains and their challenges and I began building a "mountain climbing lifestyle".

    I went in different expeditions around the world and I am always looking for interesting challenges in far away mountain ranges. As often as possible I spend my time in the Alps, training, climbing and enjoying life.

    I became a national mountain guide in Romania in 2011. Since then, I love sharing my passion for the mountains and I enjoy taking clients to incredible places. I'm also a volunteer in educational activities to promote the values of authentic alpinism.

    I believe in self development and always getting better at what I do, so in 2015 I joined the IFMGA mountain guide training program at EEMGA (East European Mountain Guides Association) and became a fully certified IFMGA mountain guide in 2018.

    It will be my pleasure to guide you in any adventure in the mountains.

    En flott tur i fin natur. Vi fikk vite mye om isbreens tilstand og vi fikk prøvd både isklatring og via Ferrata. Guiden snakket flytende engels så det var lett å kommunisere. En behagelig og artig tur med litt utfordringer.

    My partner and I felt so safe with Mihnea. Mihnea was very professional and listened to how we were feeling during the entire time he was with us. He is very knowledgable about Mounteering. We decided not to attempt the summit due to bad weather a few days before and Mihnea tailored another plan for us which we had a great time doing. Mounteneering was very physically and mentally challenging and I am glad we got to spend time with Mihnea to learn more about techniques so maybe we can practice more and then one day attempt the summit again with Mihnea. This is a great trip!

    I spent 3 very exciting days at Balea Lake having very good snow and weather conditions. Accomodation at Paltinu Hotel was good and evenings passed quickly meeting all different type of mountain people :-). Skitours started from Paltinu Hotel (2034m) up to different mountain saddles (ca. 2300m) on skis. Going further to summits was possible but quite challenging as we had to climb in 1m of fresh snow carrying skis on the backpack. Nevertheless we had a lot of fun and Mihnea guided in all situations safely.
