Creasta Nordică a Pietrei Craiului - 1 zi

Hiking the Northern Ridge of Piatra Craiului Mountains is, for sure, one of the most popular tours. Please be aware that it’s a both physically and mentally challenge, taking into consideration the distance and altitude that we are going to change. Previous experience in mountain hiking and good fitness level are mandatory to complete the program.

Very early in the morning, I will meet you up in the front of Zarnesti Tourist Information and Promotion Center. After a short introduction and briefing, we’ll keep driving along the road to Fantana lui Botorog, where we’ll fill up the water bottles and leave our vehicles.

Once arrived in the ridge, during the clear days, we’ll enjoy the all around panoramas. Walking the ridge will be challenging and demanding; it will request all our attention as long as falling is not an option. We will have to pass some points by scrambling (not technical – climbing equipment is not necessary). After reaching the highest summit of Piatra Craiului Mountains (Piscul Baciului-2238m), we’ll descent and we’ll hike back to the town of Zarnesti, through the canyon of Prapastiile Zarnestilor.

If you have enough time, I recommend you taking into consideration an additional training day, also, to be sure that your fitness level and skills are the requested ones. We will spend the previous night at Curmatura mountain hut, to be closer to the ridge.

Înainte de a vă rezerva locul, vă invit să faceți o evaluare realistă a capacităților dumneavoastră (fizice și mentale). De asemenea, vă rog să citiți Sistemul de evaluare a dificultații traseelor , respectiv Termeni și Condiții.

After completing the Northern Ridge of Piatra Craiului Mountains, you will be addicted for the other half: Southern Ridge.
