The Mountains of Romania
A guide to walking in the Carpathian Mountains
Guidebook to walking and trekking in Romania's Carpathian Mountains, including Transylvania, the Brasov mountains, the Retezat mountains and Eastern Carpathians. One of the wildest parts of Eastern Europe, the guidebook covers all the main ranges with routes from 3 miles to 7 day hikes. Practical information on Romania included.
SeasonsFrom Spring until autumn, with May and June probably the best times. Snow persists into June in the high mountains.
CentresThe main centres in the Carpatrhians are Brasov and Sibiu, which give access to the Becegi, Fagaras and Retezat regions.
DifficultyMountain walks, usually well waymarked through the high Carpathians. Plenty of refuges.
Must SeeThe Fagaras ridge is most of 50 miles long and compares to Scotland’s best. Much of the rest of just as good. Wolves, bears and a different but changing culture.
