  • Please note that the car park is located near the monastery. The road starts with the parking lot. The monastery is passing from the left. Along the way you should pay attention to the signpost located near the makeselic fence of barbed wire. This fence has to go. I ignored it and I had to go back. The road ran up and you had to turn. After crossing the border of the National Park the trail is already well marked. Blue. A fairly steep approach. 4 hours up and two down. On the way the station Meteo. Water and meal must be taken with you. There is nothing on the way. At the top is a hut where you can possibly wait for a breakdown of the weather.

  • The view is amazing. The trail is marked and is easy to climb. It takes 5 hours to climb and 3 hours to go down.  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.
