Full route name: Bârcaciu Chalet – Căldarea Văii Mari a Avrigului – Avrig Lake

From Barcaciu Chalet, with fresh forces, hikers start towards Avrig Lake, going past two glacial thresholds. Avrig Lake is a glacial lake located in the valley of Avrig, under the rocky wall of Ciortea Peak, at 2470 m, part of Făgăraș Massif, and it is an ideal place of rest for those who want to reach Negoiu Peak. The upper threshold of the trail may seem difficult to cross, due to the more rugged terrain, but the route offers an impressive view of the lake, as well as on the main ridge, with the Ciortea and Scara Peaks.
