The eastern part of Moldavia is less explored but particularly beautiful. From the village of Lepșa you can set off on a themed hike through the Tișita Gorge - a spectacular trail in early autumn. Camping enthusiasts will find a few places around the Putna waterfall. The more adventurous can try the trails in the Nemira Mountains or the summer bobsleigh run in the Ghimeș-Făget pass area.
