Metaliferi Mountains are just a group of the Apuseni Mountains and can be recognized by being covered by forests to the top. The whole area they cross is of a striking, savage beauty that seemed untouched by the time. Also, another special feature of the Apuseni Mountains is the scattered villages and the houses of people who are situated at high altitudes, but the greatest wealth of this area, the Brady area, is the gold, and the route of this hiking takes us right in the footsteps of the former gold mine and the hill which, most likely, he still conceals his treasure.
