Approaching Judele peak
The near tower is Turnu Porţii (gate tower), on its right Vf. Judele (which is a bit higher - 2398 m). The snowfield on the left covers a frozen lake: Lacul Agătat.

Looks that similar to High Tatras! Also amount of snow is comparable to some High Tatras' valleys. I like those rock towers. Cheers Tomas :)

Yes, this part or Retezat is the most Tatra-like. In fact, the Tatra spirit was continuously with us on this trip. We were chatting about the tourism potential of Hateg town (at the feet of Retezat) being similar to that of Poprad on the way, then, when we arrived to the entry point of the NP, the first vehicle we saw was a bus with Poprad licence plate. Later we have met its people - they turned out to be TANAP officials who were on a guided visit. Wow... :)

Thanks for very interesting info! TANAP officials often go visit national parks of character similar to Tatras. They went also to Appenines, Gran Sasso and the like. More parks, richer park management diversity, more people - let's hope that helps change TANAP management to its best. Hope to visit Retezat one day - maybe even in september - I will let you know if I go. Cheers, Tomas :)

Nice to hear about your Retezat plans ;)

To increase your appetite, here are some
photos (a couple of them will be familiar, but there are new ones as well).

Cheers, Peter
