Today we’re setting course to one of the most beautiful and photogenic parts of Ciucas: the Bratocea area.
We start in the morning and drive to Bratocea pass, near Cheia village. Then, the route will take us for an easy walk, through the quiet forest, and then out , in a beautiful meadow.
The meadow is a very nice place for a quick stop and photos. Moving further, the mountain starts to reveal its surprises, one by one: lovely trails, amazing viewpoints all around, the bizarre rocks in all shapes and sizes, the tower of Goliath...
Did we mention that the area of Bratocea is one of those places perfect for panoramic photos? Don’t miss that!
The landscape offers great perspectives towards Bucegi Mountains, Piatra Mare and the city of Brasov.
Slowly but surely we’re getting closer to Ciucas Peak, the highest point for the day and the highest in the massif: 1954 m. The view from up there is.... breathtaking!
On our way down from the peak we’ll make a few stops and look for the best places for photos. The mountain could be full of surprises..
We will call it a day in the Bratocea Pass and then head out for a good and rewarding meal.
End of program.
