Early departure from Bucharest. We will drive to Campulung Muscel and then to Voina hut, the starting point for the day. Located near the forest, Voina offers a short glimpse of the beautiful Iezer Papusa Mountains.
First, we will cross the river, and go deep into the forest and then straight into the heart of the mountain. The trail goes uphill, pushing the muscles to the maximum.
In about 2 hours we’ll get out of the forest, to a beautiful meadow, where we’ll make the first stop, for a snack and some photos. The place is so quiet and peaceful that it will inspire you to dream…
The mountain begins to reveal its beauty.. As we go higher, we get perspectives of Piatra Craiului and Bucegi, in the background. But that is not all: the great ridge of Iezer looks fantastic too…
Yeap, now we are surrounded by peaks that go up to 2000 m and higher, deep forests and alpine vegetation.
Time flies when you are having a good time and it is very true. It flies so fast that you will not even notice when we get to a nice viewpoint from where you can admire the highest peaks in Iezer. The view is breathtaking!
Now we are on the ridge and we will slowly descend to a beautiful glacial lake, at the altitude of 2135 m! Can you believe that?
We will have a break near the lake and then, fully energized and happy, we will return to Voina hut.
Return to Bucharest in the evening.
