Moieciu de Sus - Valea Prăvalele - Şaua Strunga - Cabana Padina

Description

Moieciu de Sus, located a little further away from the tourist attractions of the area, is quiet and picturesque. The fresh air and the absolutely delightful landscapes of the Bucegi and Piatra Craiului make it a destination in itself, as well as an excellent starting point to the high ridges of the Bucegi Mountains.

Trail 29 (red cross) is less demanding than the previous one, with a smoother climb, but once you reach Grohotisului Valley, after you leave the road (first paved road, then dirt road) in Moieciu de Sus, the view of the western slope of the Bucegi with Strunga Mare and (2,089 m) and Strunga Mica (1,988 m) peaks opens in front of you. The U-shaped saddle (Strunga Saddle) will capture your admiration forever.

The markers lead you on the left slope of the valley (as you climb), through the forest, to an elevation of about 1,650 meters, at the base of the alpine meadows, then they climb a well-marked slope to the intersection with trail 27 (which climbs from Simon) at an elevation of 1,700 m. Make a 5 minute detour to the only spring in the area (captured by a plastic pipe - it does not flow in dry periods!) and soon reach Strunga Saddle (1,909 m) (connection with trails 30 and 54). In case of need, Strunga Mountain Hut is located below, to the east.

Descend 1½ hours on the left slope of Coteanu Valley (Mount Colti) to Strunga sheepfold, then to Padina Hut (1509 m), following the signposts and then the road for articulated tractors. Padina is an important hub for the trails in the area, a place to rest or relax that can be reached by any means of transport.
