Expedition in Buila – Vanturarita Mountains
Dear friends, on 12-13 March, we invite you starting with spring time on a new mountain trail, in Buila – Vanturarita, part of Capatanii Mountains (Meridionals Carpathians).
We will leave early morning, on the route Bucharest – Pitesti – Valcea – Pietreni village (near Horezu) from which our climb will start towards Curmatura Builei near Morii River. This trail reaches the North – West part of Buila – Vanturarita Mountains and makes the connections between different trails that go on the peaks. This is one of the most beautiful trails from the area and is of medium difficulty. We will have with us only a small backpack and minimum equipment and the route will last 9 hours for going up and down. The descending will be done on the same route.
The accommodation will be done in Horezu at Hotel Horezu where we will serve dinner. For the evening we will have a new challenge for you, a pleasant one, to present some nice poems about nature that inspires you.
Sunday morning, after we will enjoy a healthy breakfast, we will head towards Polovragi Cave, from Parang Mountains, on Oltetului River. The Cave has 10 km long, but only 800 m can be visited. The first sector has a tremendous history which is connected with Zamolxe, Dacians, healers and monks. Sector 2 of the cave is much more interesting from geomorphologic point of view.
Then, on the way back we will visit Maldaresti Houses, old fortification that stood against Turkish attacks. They were built in XVI century and the oldest are Greceanu and Duca Houses.
Another stop will be at Costesti, to watch the special stones called trovanti, those bizzar shapes that grow from themselves. They are surrounded by many legends like having supernatural origins or like being proves of UFO civilization, but one thing is for sure that here the atmosphere is peaceful and quiet.
We will stop on Dealu Negru for lunch and then we will continue our way towards Bucharest.
