All about the trip
We divided this relaxed one day tour into two parts, both with beautiful natural and architectural sceneries.
In the first part of the day, we will enjoy the ‘Arieş’ River (the River of Gold) which ribbons its way for over 160 kilometers, carving one of the most picturesque valleys in Transylvania. Along the way, we will admire the waterfalls, gorges, meadows and communities living in hamlets. We will make a short hike to Vanatarile Ponorului waterfall, the place where the BBC filmed the first part of the popular documentary Wild Carpathia. We will witness breathtaking sceneries and old Romanian architecture.
In the second part of the tour, we will make another 40 minutes by car in order to reach Rimetea village and Coltesti fortress. The village of Rimetea is a picturesque traditional Hungarian village which won in 1999 the Europa Nostra prize for the ecotourist destination of excellence. Old traditional Hungarian houses and incredible sceneries of the Piatra Secuiului (The Szeklers stone) are two of the local highlights. From here we will have a short drive to Coltesti village, where we will start the second short hike to Coltesti fortress. The fortress has a very interesting story and a spectacular position which gives us one of the best views of the landscape in Trascau Mountains.
This is an easy 3-hour hike with 300 meters level difference.What Wikipedia Says
