Fagaras Mountain Day Hike: Balea Lake circuit with extensions to 2507m peak
Explore the impressive Fagaras Mountains. Using the Transfagarsan Highway – the winding mountain road – we can easily reach 2035 meters altitude at Balea Lake. From the lake we start the day hike up to the main ridge of Fagaras Mountain. The route is of medium difficulty, with some steep sides at places. Once we reach the main ridge line we are delighted by amazing and breathtaking views across the entire ridge. In a distance, sometimes hidden or only partially covered by the high clouds, we can see the Moldoveanu Peak at 2544meters altitude – the highest peak in Romania.
Our trail will take us around the whole glacial lake returning to the starting point from a different side. We will take sometime for a refreshing drink on the hut terrace before our return drive.
