The blue triangle trails start at the tourist lodge and turn left. The first section of the road leads us through woods reach in rivulets. There are 9 wooden bridges across these rivulets. This section is called Drumul Zmeilor. Once we are out of the woods we ascend up to Saratii valley. We cross the valley and climb to the spring of a brook. 1 3 hours away from our starting point we reach Piatra Prânzului from where a road descends:

Piatra Prânzului - Călțun lake

Our road to the main ridge takes us through fallen rocks. We soon reach a rocky forest. Peștera de sub Vârful Negoiu, 2258m is 150m away on the left. This cave is 17m long and its floor is always covered with a layer of ice. The dizzy height of Sărății offers us a view on such famous rocks as Arcul Cleopatrei, Foarfeca, etc. One more ascent and we find ourselves in Cleopatra saddle.
