August 1978, while doing the 2nd part of our four-week trek: Piatra Craiului - Fagaras - Capatini-Paring - Retezat.
The Fagaras was fantastic but terribly windy. Seems typical of this range.
Very special trip. One day on the top of Moldoveanu. Next day at the Black Sea :).
15 hours, all day long!
during the walking over Fagaras mountains
Special thanks to all the people from my group from Poland. We had beautiful weather, sometimes cloudes veiled a view.
We spent one week in Fagaras going east.
Spent two days near the summit in the little reffuge, and climed the summit 7 times; once at night in total darkness because my partner left his camera up there.
It is a fantastic place to be!!!
Romania... what a people, what a country... :)
Passed by the summit on a two week trek from Sinaia to Sibiu. Great moutains. Technically very easy but enough height gain and loss to make them a physical challenge. Very quiet when I was there and the weather followed a three day cycle of blue skies building up to an afternoon and evening of thunder storms. Note that water sources seem scarce along the main ridge so take some large water bottles to fill up when you have the chance.
During the fast, four day long, crossing of Fagaras mountains. Weather was quite awfull - raining.
This is a nice mountain area. You have easy treking routes and climbing routes (max. TD) in summer ; in winter it`s more dangerous and you have the posibility to make some ice climbing.
Very nice mountins
Great view and nice trip , but sometimes too many people , they should force you to cross the whole range if you want to get there :)
if you want some information about moldoveanu,write me.
