Have you already been on winter tours and want to reach a high peak in the Carpathians? Do you want an active weekend at the beginning of March?

Come with us to Vârful Retezat (2482m), from the massif of the same name! A challenging lap, but with views worth the effort!
And the next day, a bit of poetry: a walk to Funătura Ponorului, a magical and charming place, which will surely welcome us with open arms!
Difficulty level: Medium/High, previous winter mountain driving experience required. Also, the length of the routes is significant. For details, please contact us by phone
Meeting point: Râușor, Hunedoara county
Period: 01-03 March 2024
400 lei
The reservation of the place is made by paying an advance of 100 lei
Meeting place: in Râușor, Friday evening
Minimum number of participants: 5 people

✔ Friday evening: we meet, socialize, do an individual equipment check and discuss the next day's route.
✔ Saturday: We start early in the morning on the route, around 07.30. Being a long route, it is preferable to start early to have as much light as possible. We will cross the forest floor, climbing vigorously towards the alpine gap, with excellent views of the cut massif, but also of the neighbors: the Godeanu and Țarcu Mountains! Along the way we will have leisurely time to discuss various aspects of a winter mountain tour, potential dangers, suitable equipment, etc.
Route duration: 5-6 hours
Difference in level: ~ 450 m
Route length: ~ 10-11 km
✔ Sunday: After a well-deserved night of rest, the next day we do an easier tour. We travel by car approx. 40 minutes to the town of Federi, from where we start on a walk to Fundătura Ponorului, a wonderful land that charms us with its timeless energy. After a lap around the Dead End, we're back to the cars and then back home, having a challenging but magical weekend behind us!
