Dear Hikers,
Join us on Saturday, August 5, we set off on a hike in the Transylvanian Hills. We meet Valchid, from where we reach relatively quickly up, on the ridge of the hill, and take it south through a wonderful oak forest. We reach a pasture, next to Copșa Mare, we admire the landscape, but we take a left, on Via Transilvanica, towards Nou Săsesc.
In terms of difficulty, the hike is designed for beginners and intermediates – or for those who want a day in nature without the difficulties of mountain terrain. The difference in level is not very big, the slopes are not steep, but a minimum resistance is required to walk a long way (it is about 16 km).
We recommend it because of the special landscapes, either from the top of the hill or from the bottom of the valley.
