A long hike in a fantastic weather with scenery reminding of The Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit.
I woke up early that morning and while I was getting up-to-date with the recent news, I stumbled upon this post on Facebook:
Who would want to experience the nature of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit without all those bad creatures?S. J.
That day we had planned to go for a long hike in the mystical Bucegi Mountains of Romania and I thought it would be funny if we met some wargs and goblins along the way.
We were especially excited about this hiking trip because we would walk on trails we hadn’t been on before and discover the side of mountain that was yet unknown to us.
We started our hike at the Bolboci lake and hiked to Saua Strunga and then headed down to Moieciu de Sus and from there to Gutanu and finally to the village of Simon, near the Bran Castle.
All in all, it ended up being an incredible hiking trip that would make any Tolkien fan jealous.
We lost the trail several times, had some incredible views, interesting weather, winter and summer on the same day and yes, we also met some beasts and dragons along the way.
It was a great hike, but let’s leave the photos to tell the story.
This was a training session a week before the Transylvania 100K, a trail running race through the mountains of Transylvania, which takes place in Romania in the second half of May.
