We are crossing the main ridge of Paring Mountains in a wonderful nine days trip.
Distance 168.4 km
Paring Mountains - Buila Vinturarita rises like a mighty fortress (alt. max. Vf. Paringu Great 2519m) over Petrosani depression and Jiu Gorge . Central slopes surrounding two huge buckets that are nesting glacial lakes (Cilcescu Lake and Red lake). An additional element of attraction and value of the park is the existence in this area or in close proximity of many cultural and historical objectives : Arnota, Bistriţa, Horezu, Frăsinei monasteries, Pătrunsa, Pahomie, Iezer, Bradu, Jgheaburi hermitages, ancient churches like 44 Izvoare, Păpuşa, Peri, church cave like Peştera Liliecilor, wonderful caves like: Muierii and Polovragi, churches from the surrounding localities and traditions, customs and traditional architecture of the villages at the foot of the mountain .
I was amazed by Pahomie hermitage.It is a wonderful place that fills you with the breath of God.
