Transrarau, also known as the Treasures’ Path, the third most beautiful alpine road in Romania
Transrarau is the latest modern alpine road in Romania and ranks third on beauty, following Transalpina and Transfagarasan. Also known as the Treasures’ Path and measuring 28 kilometers, you can cover it up by bike or even on foot. One legend says that in 1541, Petru Rares would have found shelter for his family and a hiding place for its fortune from the Tatar hordes right in Rarau Mountains.
One of the most important tourist roads in Moldova, it links Bistrita Valley and Moldova Valley. Transrarau extends to Pojorata, Suceava County, located at the intersection with road E58. The road reaches 1,400 meters altitude and facilitates the access to the Cabin, Rarau Skete, as well as the famous natural monument, ‘Lady’ Rocks’ (Pietrele Doamnei). Close to Pietrele Doamnei Cabin you can try climbing the steep slopes with special equipment, an extreme sport that is gaining increasing ground in Romania. There are 130 climbing routes in the area, some of the most spectacular in the country.
‘Routes begin from the easiest, where you can learn climbing as a beginner with minimum necessary equipment, to the heavier ones, advanced routes known by athletes as reference routes, ‘explained Nicu Durnac for Digi 24.
Accommodation reaches RON 200- 250 for all inclusive in some of the most luxurious hotels but you can lodge for less.
