- Omu mountain hut was a unique experience. Very basic - about 30 of us in a single room for the night. I particularly enjoyed our two nights at the guesthouse in Moeicu. Comfortable, friendly and good food. The day on the Piatra Craiului ridge was very challenging. A tough climb to the ridge itself, unable to use my walking poles because we were repeatedly scrambling over rocks. Not much easier when we reached the ridge because it is narrow, undulating and we had to hold onto a chain on two tricky sections. Our guide Horea looked after us well on this difficult day giving detailed instructions to those who were struggling. Views from the ridge were excellent. The following day the descent through the Zarnesti Gorge was impressive. This holiday was more challenging than other Explore walking trips but very satisfying.
