Difficulty

Medium

Dear hikers,

We invite you to a summer experience at Suru Cabin.
The tour will be as follows:
We start from Valea Avrigului and climb the forest road to Izvorul Florii, then we will ascend towards Culmea Moașei, following the trail to Suru Cabin. There, we will take a first break for coffee/tea and admire the view of the area. Those who wish to take a longer break and do not want to climb to the peak can stay here. We will continue the ascent towards Suru Peak via the Monument of the Mountain Rescuers. Once we reach the peak, we will rest for a bit, admire the Făgăraș ridge, and then descend on the same trail.
The hike is suitable for people with average to good physical condition, with the difficulty being in the length and the accumulated elevation gain, although it is not a technical trail with exposed sections.

WHERE AND WHEN DO WE MEET?

We will meet in the morning at 8:00 AM in the parking lot of the Hervis store at the mall in Șelimbăr (DN1). From there, we will travel by personal cars on the route: Sibiu – Valea Avrigului – Izvorul Florii, where we will park at around 9:30 AM.
