Re: Camping base required
Have You checked out the mountain villages next to Bran, Magura and Pestera? Wonderful nature trails start from there, very many different marked trails. Very nice views and in the villages real Romanian village life. A friend of mine has a small house there, it should not be expensive, but is clean and safe. You can write
There is a place in Brasov, but for You for the mountain hiking it might be too far away. You can check out www.ladespani.ro
From Brasov you can hike up the Tampa mountain to enjoy the view of the city (but only daytime hiking please, otherwise you might meet a bear on your way), a nice nature trail goes up to Poiana Brasov, the ski centre, or a walk which starts where Brasov ends towards Bucharest, "Seven stairs" it is called, first a walk through the forest with a river runnig next to you, then some climbing up the metal stairs in between narrow rocks with a waterfall falling next to you making the stairs slippery and wetting you as well, the highest stair is 15 meters. And then a marked trail till the top of the mountain 1,5 hour walk.
Enjoy Romania, it is a lot of fun!
