Fagaras Mountains Trek
For ten days between September and October 2003, I went trekking in the Fagaras mountains, part of the
Carpathian Alps in central Romania. This mountain group is probably the most popular in the country and
contains Romania's two highest summits - Moldoveanu Peak at 2544m and Negoiu Peak at 2535m. The main ridge
is around 60km in length and only drops below 2000m once over its entire length.
I travelled with two friends, Colin and Dave. We commenced our trek from Zarnesti, a village south-west
of Brasov, one of Romania's larger cities, finishing at Sebesu de Sus around 90km further west from where we
travelled to Sibiu, a medieval city in Transylvania, for some cultural exploration.
This page gives a pictorial account of the trip, together with accompanying notes.
