Cabana Caraiman - Crucea Eroilor Neamului

Description

A very short trail that can be difficult for hikers who are not fit or who are afraid of heights. Considered one of the most dangerous paths, but without big difference in elevation, trail 42 (blue dot) connects Caraiman Hut to the Heroes’ Cross - unique historical monument in the world in terms of location (connection with trail 41).

In winter, the trail is restricted and it is also dangerous in bad weather, when the trail is dipped in mist or in spring when the dales that the trail crosses are still covered in snow. As it follows a ledge, the trail is very narrow and it does not resemble a walk in the park. The trail winds over a precipice and it runs deep in the imposing rocky wall, Caraiman’s Great Ledge.

One should also keep in mind the location of Caraiman's Little Saddle, at an elevation of 2,025 m, or of Caraiman Hut, a place that offers wonderful panoramic views of Busteni, Caraiman Cross, Baiului Mountains and Caraiman's Great Ledge.
