Trip Info

Worshiped by our ancestors, Ceahlau has a yearly date celebrated by the pilgrims. August 6 is also the Day of the Mountain. Ceahlau Mountain was considered by Dacians the nest of Zamolxis god. The old name of the mountain is Peon, which translated from Greek means The Pole House. Today, Ceahlau is considered the second holy mountain of Orthodox Christianity after Mount Athos.

We start this trekking tour at Oradea and travel to Bicaz to stay overnight in tent or chalet, depending on weather conditions. The next day, we will enjoy a boat ride on Lake Bicaz and again stay overnight in tent or chalet.

The third day will see us travel to Chalet Izvorul Muntelui where we’ll stay overnight in tent or chalet. In the morning, we head to Chalet Dochia for overnight in tent or chalet. The fifth day will see us go to Durau for another overnight stay.

In the morning, we visit northern Moldavia monasteries of Voronet, Agapia, Sucevita, Varatec, Putna, Moldovita and Arbore. We’ll stay overnight in tent or chalet. We return to Oradea the next day.
