Dear hiker,

Roam the mountains with Nico, singing and having fun, to the crest of the Cindrel Massif and the wonderful land of Țara Colibelor, stopping at the Poiana Trandafirilor Refuge, and then to one of the most welcoming hosts, Grandma Maria, who will win you over from the first moment!


Sunday, 23.06.24 at 8:45 AM in Sibiu
Location: Kaufland Shopping City Șelimbăr parking lot, with personal cars heading towards Rau Sadului.

At 9:30 AM, we will start the actual climb from the Sadu II Reservoir towards Poiana Trandafirilor, following the crest trail to Dealul Drăguț through Șaua Târnova.
