Short and spectacular hikes

Short and spectacular hikes

star-5

The short hikes on the hills of Moieciu de Sus are a unique experience, due to the red of paths developed in time by the locals, who needed to get to their sheepfolds, where they used to shelter the cattle, to feed them. These paths are random and unmarked and in their gran majority go through locals pastures, but whichever we take, it always gets us to a marvelous place! All along the hikes, the views over Moeciu Valley, Fundata, the Bucegi and the Piatra Craiului mountain ranges are stunning!

Carpathians in Romania: Bucegi Natural Park with native Spanish guide.

star-5

Almost all the trips that go to the Bucegi Natural Park are made from the part of Sinaia, which is the tourist part and where there are always large crowds both people and traffic. We prefer to start the excursion on the opposite side, the west side of the Bucegi, which is the authentic, wild part, where you really enjoy nature and where, apart from shepherds with their herds of cows and sheep, we rarely find other people .

For those of you who are vegetarians, there is a variety of cheeses available. After we start eating in the tower and under the spell of brandy we are going for a proper lunch cooked Saxon. Don’t eat too much even if is delicious because we still have to walk around in the village and talk about the local architecture than take the way back.
