"Where sheep go up into the sky..." Muntii Fagaras by Taffi

The Fagaras mountains

Quite close to the city of Sibiu you'll find this mountain range. It is not for the inexperienced hiker but a communist-era road goes straight through it: the famous "Transfagarasan".

Balea Lac

A popular tourist spot is Lake Balea, a small picturesque mountain lake. Spectacular views over the valley and the Transfagarasan. Two chalets, a campground and the unavoidable stalls, all selling the same stuff! Can get crowded in summer because you can drive right up to it.

"In sus, in nouri, in Balea Lac, ..., Acolo unde turma se duce in cerul"

An excerpt from Moldovan Zdob si Zdub's song "450 de oi"
("Up, into the clouds, to Balea Lac, where the herd goes up into the sky")
