Description

A short and easy trail for any hiker, without big difference in elevation, trail 35 (yellow dot), starts from the former Varful cu Dor Hut, climbs 10-15 minutes below the Shepherd's Table (where you can have a break) and continues (optionally) with a 10-minute climb to Varful cu Dor Peak (2,030 m).
Return to the path and descend below the walls of the peak, through the alpine pastures, to Pintenul Dorului and then along the contour line to Vanturis Saddle and Vanturis Lakes, the intersection with trail 33 (red dot).
The landscape is dominated by the steep slope of Barbes Fangs, offering panoramic views of Vanturis Valley and Paduchiosul Peak (1,925 m). At the intersection of Bucegi Plateau with Vanturis pothole - the steep slope between Barbes Fangs and Vanturis, the Vanturis Waterfalls were formed as a result of the height from where the water of Izvorului Dorului flows. The waterfalls can be visited if you make a detour.
