Full route name: Sibiel Railway Stop – Village of Fântânele – Former Fântânele Chalet – La Pripoane

The route starts from the Sibiel Railway Stop and invites hikers to walk through the village of Fântânele, through orchards and meadows, among huts and cliffs, on Lăpușel Hill, through the forest, to the former Fântânele Chalet. Along the route, the open views over the Cindrel Mountains and the Făgăraşi ridge are really wonderful, and the birch and fir tree forests add to the beauty of the blue sky and of the green pastures. In order to experience the intense colours of this route, we recommend a visit in the fall, at the beginning of October, when the golden colours of birch leaves blend perfectly with the autumn smell of the tree bark.
