Category: Făgăraş mountains
Făgăraş mountains are the highest mountains in Romania. The highest top is Moldowianu - 2544 meters. Făgăraş on one hand are the high, rocky mountains but on the other seems to be not too difficult for hiking ( at least easier than polish Tatra mountains ). The most difficulties are caused by small amount of mountain hostels and very extensive area. So if You want to climb Negoiu or Moldowianu - You have to hike with full equipment (rucksack and tent) - to stay for night somewhere in mountains. For example, route from the Balea Lac to Moldowianu takes 12 hours (one way) - so return in the same day is impossible. The next thing which can be a problem to some tourists (this is a problem for me too) there is the lack of artificial
protections like: chains, buckles (however, I have heard, that we will meet some close to Negoiu, but they are in very bad technical condition ).
