The Făgăraș Mountains are the highest and largest mountain ranges of the Carpathians. Trekking along the main ridge during summer is not an easy task, but in winter it is a real challenge.

Piatra Craiului Mountains
According to many peoples’ opinion – and also in my opinion – Piatra Craiului is regarded as one of the most beautiful mountains in Romania.
