A definitive guidebook to walking and trekking in Romania’s Carpathian Mountains, one of the wildest parts of Eastern Europe. Covers all the main ranges in the southern Carpathians, and the Eastern Carpathians and Bucovina’s monasteries. Complete information on getting to grips with Romania.
From Spring until autumn, with May and June probably the best times. Snow persists into June in the high mountains.
The main centres in the Carpatrhians are Brasov and Sibiu, which give access to the Becegi, Fagaras and Retezat regions.
Mountain walks, usually well waymarked through the high Carpathians. Plenty of refuges.
The Fagaras ridge is most of 50 miles long and compares to Scotland’s best.
