How about a trip back in time? In this trip you will find hamlets that are isolated in the mountains living a very simple life. More than this, you will have the chance to experience their lives, because we are going to spend a night there, at the peasants. On the other side we have the magic world of Tasnei Gorge: wild, untamed, imposing. The trees look like huge bonsai attached to the rock.
Type of activity: Trekking, mountain hamlets and visits at cultural objectivesLevel of difficulty: mediumDay 1: Drive to the amazing Domogled-Valea Cernei National Park (3 hours). You begin our trip back in time. After 2 hours of hiking you will find hamlets that are isolated, without electric power, no roads, the only points of access are 4 stairways, vertically attached on the rock. This is how the people from the area actually live: isolated. You will be impressed by their stories from the everyday life and find out what they do on a daily basis, and how they manage in such a remote area especially when they need an ambulance…Overnight stay at a locals house, on the mountain, to live their real experience.Day 2: You leave your hosts and move forward to the next hamlets of these mountains.
