  • It's incredibly beautiful range of mountains in the north of Romania. You will never regret going to Pietrosul, the highest summit in Rodnei. We went there from Borsa. It's not very difficult but the....  more »
  • Great place to visit if you are a tourist. Check Romania,you'll be surprised by the things this beautiful country has to offer.
  • An impressive mountain with an altitude of 2,303m! Its massiveness is unique having the 5th prominence among all Carpathians with 1,565m calculated.The view from the top is similar to higher mountains(Alps) and the climb is worth it.Because it is situated in the northern part of Romania,has similar characteristics as the much southern Fagaras mountains,considered the Transylvanian alps.The route to the peak is relatively short to medium (5-6 hours from Borsa) or 4 hours from the parking place (asphalted until this point).Route back is 3 hours to the parking place or 4-4-1/2 to the city center. The climb is easy but you have to be fit to finish it without being exhausted. It is recommanded to be climbed on good weather, best conditions in september and early october(colder) and forbidden in the winter due to avalanches. Early spring is also good time to climb or sunny summer days without thunderstorms.Anyway, at half way you will find a meteo station where you can find shelter in bad weather conditions.Tourist are not allowed in other conditions to stay at the station but nearby is a good place for camping, towards the glacial lake.
