Our mark starts at Vâlsan Dam. Here you can get from Bradet on a road that follows the beautiful of Vâlsan valley, unfortunately destroyed lately by financial interests, not even taking into account the reservation. After the key area we reach the Vâlsan valley.

15 km after departure, we reach Vâlsan Dam and the beginning of our marking. Approximately 1 km from the dam we start the climb to the left. The serpentines pull us on the edge of the Tuica mount and then on the hole of the Picuiata mountain. The climb is smooth and we get to the Scărișoara saddle.

This place has an exceptional panorama on the main ridge and the imposing pyramid of the Moldavian. Here comes:
