|Winter in Switzerland...|
Yeah I know that and love the Romanian cabanas. Most of them are really nice and cosy places. But sadly some are now lacking money and miss the necessary investments.
Here in Switzerland the opposite is happening: Some of the huts are becoming more and more like "mini mountainhotels. I recently visited a mountain hut, which had at 2500 m hot showers, and a bubble bath... Thats strange for me. But you can still find rustic, wooden shelters, which are pretty much like they were 40 years ago.
But anyway the good thing is - most huts are open over the winter. They are unguarded and you have to put your money for your stay in a deposit box in the cabin. The whole system is based on mutual trust. Mostly the problem is then to reach the huts when there is a lot of snow, which can be difficult.

the photo had been taken in a small village called "Doro" just above Chironico, which again si in the Valle Leventina (the main valley in Ticino where the Gotthard-highway is located.

Yeah, I know how it is at Barcaciu... Have been there last winter. But you can also here in Switzerland find some remote farms or alpine huts, which are more rustic. For example at the "Bristen" Valley, there you find a tourist-dormitory, which looks pretty much like a Romanian Cabana. Its like time stands still there. But this farm in the Foto of course is very shiny...:-D
Hi Georgel, the Photo had been taken at the end of oktober this year. And you are right - there had not been snow at that time. This changed now in the last two weeks...:-D
Sorry for answering in english, but my romanian is still very basic...
Yes, its really a nice lake, its at the middle of Pirin.
Yes, it was really a nice holiday over there. The picture was taken in Rila-Nationalpark. We camped at this place for a night. Just some 30 minutes after this photo a massive thunderstorm hit us.
eh, could you perhaps repeat in english or german? (Iīm from Germany andabout to learn some romanian, but at the moment I just understand a few words romanian)

Actually I did not fire the flash. I donīt know why itīs in the EXIF. My EXIF-Viewer says: "Flash not fired".

If everything here would be in english (or even better german) it would be a lot easier for me...
But you are right the Post is better for personal communication, but my sister has been in Pestera just a week later, but everything was foggy:-(
Oh..the horse actually was a "She"....:-D:-D:-D
oh, this "foarte" and "este" is quite simple..:-) (I had some latin in school...)
More difficult is it for me to understand the written mountain guides ("ghid touristic") on this site: The long texts in the style "when you see the big river turn left.." are impossible for me to unterstand...:?
|to heaven? this way..|
Itīs near the weather station in the Ceahlau. Some hundert meters away there is this ladder - leading to one of the highest peaks of the Ceahlau mountains (donīt exactly know the name of this mountain:-()

Your name doesn\'t indicate you as a native German,
can also be Romanian, and I thought it was someone trying to fool us.
Itīs the first time I hear my name sounds romanian... Perhaps the best motivation to learn more romanian!
No problem for your comment. I know itīs not so often that people from other countries post pictures on alpinet.org.
But for me it was a helpfull site when I planed my last tours trough the romanian mountains. Here you find all the routes, together with pictures, weather...
Even when most of the time I just understood very few of the informations.
So please, please alpinet: Find someone who translates this site in english.!!!:-D:-D
I was searching my way trough the Leoarta mountains (it is not so good marked) and when I was almost about to finally get totally of my way, then I this guy came with his horse. I tried to explain that I wanted to walk to the Bucegi mountains. He understood and then we walked for almost two hours together.
When we finally almost arrived I took this photo.

Sorry, i was to quick during my writing... But I corrected it.
I would like to write in romanian. But Iīm from Germany and I am just about to learn some basic romanian. It will still take years until I can write some sentences in romanian.
I really like the alpinet site and would like to unterstand more of the texts. At the moment I can just unterstand few of the informations. What about a english or even better: german version of the site? Then I could write in german....:-D
