Although not as high as the Alps, the Carpathian Mountains extend over 600 miles in Romania, in the shape of an arch. They are divided into three major ranges: the Eastern (Oriental) Carpathians, the Southern Carpathians (also known as the Transylvanian Alps), and the Western Carpathians. The focus of this trip will be in the Transylvanian Alps.
More than just beautiful mountain landscapes, a mountain walking holiday in Romania offers a chance to discover a European scene now disappeared further west. With its wealth of ancient Orthodox monasteries, village festivals and locals in traditional costume, rural Romania offers a European cultural travel experience quite as stimulating as mountain ranges further afield. Combined with its easily-understood language, the extreme friendliness of the local population and the sheer beauty of its wild mountain scenery – all this means that exploring the mountains of Romania can be some of the most enjoyable and rewarding travelling that could ever be undertaken.
