Done in right conditions, this hiking trail can still be chalenging.

I did it in 2 days, with stop for sleeping and Curmatura Cabin.

I felt the beauty of this trail on a unusualy warm late autumn without any wind and with lots of SUN.



Hiking challenging trails where simple scrambling, with the occasional use of the hands, is a distinct possibility. The trails are often filled with all manner of obstacles both small and large, and the hills are very steep. Obstacles and challenges are often unexpected and can be unpredictable.
