We hiked the mountain for 2 days (we should have done more!) - started at Zarnesti, then up to Cabana Curmatura, and back to Zarnesti. The area is beautiful, a lot of waterfalls and greens!

we went from Zarnesti through the "Crapatura" trail and reached cabin Curmatura in about 4 hours. The trail is a bit hard but the view is totally worth it. We also went to Vf Piatra Mica which is 1 hour away from Curmatura cabin.Amazing trip.

You can park your car where the marked trails start, approximately at 1 km after you exit from Zarnesti. The place is called "Fantana lui Botorog", this name representing a spring.
