I love Parang mountains! :)

Here below you will find posted 15 of my thousand reasons for loving the Parang mountains and considering it the most beautiful place i've ever seen.

To get there, you need to take the train to Petrosani, then preferably get a cab to take you to the lift and... that's it. Start climbing. Or you can go on the Transalpina and climb from Obarsia Lotrului cabin, where you can also find accomodation.

Parang looks a lot like his neighbour - Retezat, but is less rocky and far greener and, because of that, pleasent. For me, at least.

There are lots of things to say about this surprisingly beautiful mountain: lakes, cliffs, various flowers, of all colours, the hundred years old undisturbed juniper trees "forests". And the blueberrys. And the many ice cold crystal clear springs we had to cross along the way.

Tents at 6 a.m. Sensation of sleeping in a valley no one had set foot in years... priceless. :)

The Green Lake. It's supposed to have a blue-greenish colour, but it wasn't that sunny so we only saw an extremly clear water.

The sea of clouds, one of my favourite things.

Calcescu lake.

ice cold water we had no choice but cross barefoot and the place where we pretty much said good bye to the mountain and started facing civilisation again.
