The Făgăraș Mountains are the tallest of these mountains within Romania with the tallest peak, Moldoveanu, reaching 2.544 meters. The majority of the range is located within the Romanian region of Transylvania and is still home to much of Romania’s wildlife such as brown bears. The country is becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination, receiving about 10 million per year. The Carpathians are one of the country’s main draws in that regard.

We had a great time , unfortunately Cosmin broke his arm two weeks before the trip but the replacement guide
Nicu Durnac was superb.
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.
It’s a very nice place, with very nice people. We’ve been here with a birthday party for kids and for
a climbing class with a five year old. Both have been great experiences.
