Fagaras Mountains

General description

This rock massif that is also called “The roof of Romania” offers a panoramic view over the “Tara Barsei” (Barsa Land), a view in which man is just a grain of sand in the landscape that opens from a high of 2500 meter. Our journey starts on a road located between the walls of the massif, a snake of asphalt that stares into the light blue sky.We will make a halt in a very special place: Balea Lake. This lake appears like an altar of water in a churc of stone at the base of the over 2000 meters mountain. We will then cross a part of the ridge until we will reach the highest point of the Romanian Carpathian Mountains, the peak "Moldoveanu". The joy and the enthusiasm will make the tiredness and the torment caused by this trip to disappear, leaving us with the wonderful feeling that we are the supreme masters over “Tara Barsei” (Barsa Land). The rest will become a magnificent story to tell at the fireside in the cold winter nights.
