The blue streak trails lead us around the valley of lake Balea on the northern side of Paltinul. After about 20 minutes we pass above the tunnel of the transfagaras road and start climbing on the northern side of Paltinul. The section before the pass turns mild. There is a crossroads of the trails on the grass covered Paltinu pass, since the road marking the main ridge crosses here.
