Each time I pass near these location I stop to take hundreds of pictures. Loads of places where you can stop and take pictures, buy souvenirs, eat traditional food. All you need is free time and a full battery.

No water next to trails. Bears. Blacks goats. Vicious local tourists. No beer and poor food at the huts.

It is also possible to go from Balea Lake to Moldoveanu Peak and back in 1 day - so no cumbersome backpack, but you'll need to start early and walk in a good pace (4-5 km/h). It took me about 12-13 hours to complete this... More
