Fagaras Mountains Trek - 14th – 23rd September 2018
The Fagaras Mountains, also known as ”The Transylvanian Alps” are undoubtedly the most impressive mountains in Romania. They are in fact, ”the loftiest, the highest, the iciest, the most alpine, and less horizontal” as one of the greatest geologists, Marcian Bleahu, stated. (according to Travelguide Romania).
The challenge is to trek the entire main ridge of the Mountain (87 km) in 6 days while raising funds to support the Daniel Centre, Blythswood Romania’s flagship project.
Since 2000, the Daniel Centre, near Cluj-Napoca in Romania, has offered a home to more than 100 young men who have spent their lives in state care. This project fills many of the social, emotional and educational gaps in their lives and we help them with basic life skills, emotional support, professional ethics training and work skills. This equips them for full-time employment or further education.
