Discover nature’s beauty with powder snowshoes in Piatra Craiului

English version below

Anul trecut a iesit un weekend superb in care am imbinat grup de trekking cu rachete de zapada cu grup de ski de tura. Ne propunem anul acesta sa fie cel putin lafel de frumos :o)

Pentru a asigura o tura frumoasa, zona si tura vor depinde mai mult de starea zapezilor. Deci putem modifica tura propusa mai jos daca este necesar.

Ti-ar placea sa mergi iarna pe munte dar ti-e greu sa inaintezi prin nameti de zapada si stai tot timpul cu nasul pe jos ca sa pasesti cum trebuie? Noi avem o solutie pentru tine! :o))))

Iti inmanam rachete de zapada
Ce o fi asta?!?! Rachetele de zapada sunt o extensie a bocancilor tai care maresca suprafata de presiune asupra zapezii astfel incat iti permit sa mergi la suprafata zapezii afanate. Datorita lor, poti sa ajungi in zone minunate, greu de acces fara ele. Datorita lor, nu mai pierzi momente insolite intalnite doar cand esti atent la ce vezi in jur! :oP

Prima oara cand am mers cu rachete de zapada, m-a uimit cat de fain poate fi sa mergi la suprafata zapezii si sa topai peste fara sa-ti ajunga la gat.

Pentru acest weekend, propunem o plimbare usoara spre medie pe munte mai mult de dragul naturii si a aerului proaspat. Deci, accesibil tuturor care au un minimum de conditie fizica.

Last year was a very nice weekend and we intend to be at least as wonderful this year :o)

To ensure a nice experience, the area and the tour will depend more on the state of the snow. So we can modify the proposed tour below if necessary.

You’d like to go trekking in the mountains during the winter, but it’s hard for you to walk through the deep snow and keep your nose down all the time for stepping straight? We have a solution for you! :o))))

We’re handing you snowshoes…
What is that ?!?! Snowshoes are an extension of your boots that increase the pressure surface on the snow so you can go to the surface of the fresh snow. Thanks to them, you can reach wonderful areas, difficult to access without them. Thanks to them, you don’t miss anymore unusual moments not paying attention to what you see around because you have to check where to step! :oP

The first time I went with snowshoes, I was amazed at how good it is to go on top of snow and jump around everywhere without dipping.

For this weekend, we offer a light to average walk on the mountain to enjoy the nature and fresh air of the wonderful mountain Piatra Craiului. So, it is accessible to everyone who has a minimum of physical condition.

Vineri seara ne indreptam catre Zarnesti unde vom dormi ca sa fim fresh si deja la fata locului sambata dimineata.

Sambata dimineata, pornim din Zarnesti, spre dealurile ce fac legatura intre orasul Zarnesti si Predelut. Traversam drumul de acces catre Bran, strecurandu-ne printre casele locuitorilor. Serpuind prin padurea de foioase de la poalele dealurilor ce separa Tara Branului de Tara Barsei ajungem la locul numit de localnici Vararie – caci de aici in trecut se lua piatra pentru fabricarea varului. Iesim in Saua Magurii, loc de unde putem admira intreaga panorama spre muntii Piatra Craiului, Bucegi si Leaota. Prin acesti strajeri impetuosi ai Tarii Branului despartiti doar de culuarul Rucar-Bran se face trecerea din Transilvania in Tara Romaneasca. Continuam pe muchia dealului spre vest strabatand poieni strajuite atat de copaci cat si de formatiuni calcaroase, avand in fata grandioasa creasta a Pietrei Craiului. Coboram spre satul Magura apoi spre Fantana lui Botorog. Continuam pana la Cabana Gura-Raului de unde ne recupereaza o masina.

Varianta de traseu – Plecam cu masinile pana la Fantana lui Botorog, intram prin fascinantul canion Prapastiile Zarnestiului cu ai lui pereti de calcar. Ajungem la cabana Curmatura unde putem servi pranzul. Dupa care ne intoarcem spre cazare prin Poiana Zanoaga.

Pentru prima versiune se poate aranja un pranz la un localnic din Magura care costa 25-35 lei/persoana.

Duminica, pentru a ne mai bucura de munte dar ca sa plecam la o ora rezonabila si cu suficienta energie pentru a conduce spre casa, vom face o tura scurta si usoara, mai de dragul peisajelor.

Plecăm din dreptul clădirii administrației parcului național Piatra Craiului (până aici venim cu mașinile). Urmam poteca ce duce spre mănăstirea Coltul Chiliilor, loc pretuit și considerat de localnici oază de liniște și adăpost in vremurile trecute. Potecă șerpuiește la baza masivului Piatra Craiului, peretele vestic, cu deschidere spre valea Plaiului.

Friday evening we head to Zarnesti where we will sleep to be fresh and there in the morning.

Saturday morning, we start from Zarnesti to the hills connecting the town of Zarnesti and the village of Predelut. We cross the access road to Bran, sliding through the houses of the inhabitants. Winding through the deciduous forest at the foot of the hills separating Barsa Country from Bran Country, we reach the place named by the locals Vararie – because here in the past was the stone for the production of lime.

We go to Saua Magurii (Magurii Saddle), where we can admire the entire panorama to the Piatra Craiului, Bucegi and Leaota mountains. Through these impetuous guardians of the Bran Country, separated only from the Rucar-Bran pass, the transition from Transylvania to Wallachia is made. We continue on the edge of the hill to the west, passing through the valleys of trees and calcareous formations, facing the grandiose ridge of Piatra Craiului. We go down to Magura village then to Botorog’s Fountain.We continue to Gura-Raului Chalet from where we can get a car.

Another trip version – We leave by car to Fountain of Botorog, we enter through the fascinating canyon Gorges of Zarnesti with its limestone walls. We arrive at Curmatura where we can have lunch. After which we go back crossing Poiana Zanoaga (the opening of Zanoaga).

For the first version we can arrange a lunch meal at a local villager from Magura, which costs 25-35 lei / person.

On Sunday, to enjoy the mountain, but to leave at a reasonable time and with enough energy to drive home, we will make a short and easy turn for the sake of landscapes.

We leave from the building of Piatra Craiului national park administration (we come here with the cars). We follow the path leading to the Coltul Chiliilor monastery, a place appreciated and considered by the locals as a oasis of tranquility and shelter in the past. The trail winds down at the base of the Piatra Craiului massif, the western wall, opening towards the Plaiul valley.

Cristina – Ghid turistic si Ghid Montan acreditat: Practic escalada, MTB, snowboard, via ferata si bineinteles, trekking si hiking pe toate anotimpurile. Am cunoscut acesti munți salbatici prin anii de studenție si m-am indragostit de ei la fiecare tura mai mult. Sunt unii dintre cei mai tehnici din Romania. Tura pe care o propunem acum va fi ușoară medie, cu un echipament care nu este la indemana oricui – rachete de zapada! Distractia, amuzamentul și admiratul de peisaje vor fi pe primul loc în aceasta tura!

The tour we are going to propose now will not be difficult, and accompanied by some equipment which may not be the most common one – snowshoes! Fun, jokes all the way and admiring the landscapes will be the main points on this trip!

Din data de 27.07.2018, pentru ca se schimba complet modul de functionare a brandului nostru, citeste atent urmatoarele randuri:

  1. Evadeaza Cu Noi isi propune sa ajute copii printr-o finantare automata provenita din donatiile evadatilor. Ele vor fi echivalentul unui abonament platit o data pe luna care iti deschide accesul evadarilor. Donatia de 50 lei se va face o singura data pe luna si perioada ei de valabilitate se va incheia la sfarsitul lunii legat de evadare la care ai participat. Toti banii vor fi redirectionati catre evenimente formatoare si experientiale pentru copii din centre de plasament sau catre alti copii cu nevoii. Nu vom realiza nici-un castig de pe urmele sumelor stranse pentru fondul acesta.
  2. Sumele stranse si cheltuite sunt indicate pe pagina FONDURI PENTRU COPII
  3. Sebastien Froux, omul din spatele brandului Evadeaza Cu Noi se angajeaza sa organizeze toate evenimentele fara adaos.
  4. Fiecare participant este liber sa aprecieze valoarea experientelor traite impreuna; prima experienta, bucuria activitatii traite, peisaje deosebite descoperite, oameni frumosi intalniti. Ce conteaza pentru noi este sa primesti experiente aparte si sa atingem ceva in tine.
  5. Inscrierile se fac pana la 5 zile inainte de eveniment. Mai tarziu, ne rezervam dreptul de a nu mai primi inscrieri.
  6. Plata avansului pentru a te inscrie la o evadare nu este returnabila, nici transferabila catre alta evadare. Ai acceptat aceasta clauza din momentul in care ai achitat avansul.
  7. Daca anulam o evadare, suma integrala reprezentand avansul minus costurile de transfer vor fi returnati. Aceasta clauza nu mai este valabila daca retragerea ta a provocat anularea evenimentului.
  8. Ne rezervam dreptul de modifica zonele de desfasurare a unei evadari in cazul in care:
    • conditiile meteorologice se modifica si nu mai sunt propice desfasurarii evenimentului;
    • intervin schimbari dincolo de vointa echipei care necesita sa actionam in acest sens.
  9. Ne angajam sa comunicam imediat modificarile stabilite de echipa EvadeazaCuNoi.

Since 27.07.2018, because our brand’s functionality changes completely, read carefully the following rows:

  1. Escape With Us aims to help children through automatic donation from escape donations. They will be the equivalent of a subscription that opens your escapes access. The donation of 50 lei will be done once a month and its validity period will end at the end of the escaping month you participated in. All money will be redirected to training and experiential events for children from placement centers or other needy children. We will not make any gains on the trail of funds raised for this fund.
  2. The amounts collected and spent are shown on the FUND FOR CHILDREN page
  3. Sebastien Froux, the man behind the Escape With Us brand, is committed to organize all the events making no benefits.
  4. Each participant is free to appreciate the value of the experiences lived together; first experience, the joy of lived activity, great landscapes discovered, beautiful people met. What matters to us is to get special experiences and touch something in you.
  5. Entries are made up to 5 days before the event. Later, we reserve the right to no longer receive subscriptions.
  6. The advance payment to sign up for an escape is not refundable or transferable to another escape. You have accepted this clause since you sent the advance.
  7. If we cancel an escape, the full amount of the advance minus the transfer costs will be refunded. This clause is no longer valid if your withdrawal caused the event to be canceled.
  8. We keep the right to modify areas where an escape occurs if:
    • weather conditions change and are no longer conducive to the event;
    • there are changes beyond the will of the team that require action in this respect.
  9. We are committed to immediately communicating changes made by the Escape With Us team.
