Our yellow triangle trail starts from the Podul Giurgiului, descends to the river bed and continues on the left bank. We reach the confluence with Moldoveanu brook, from where you can see the beautiful Orzănelei waterfall.

We cross the Moldoveanu stream and continue to climb on its shore. After we cross Moldoveanu sheepfold, the climb is getting stronger. Around the canyon of the creek stream to the left and 2 hours after departure we reach the Moldoveanu valley.

The trail follows a brook, tributary of the Moldoveanu stream, also climb some serpentines, until Curmătura Moldoveanu (2340m). Here we meet the markings:
