muntii-tarcauPresentation: the Tarcau Mountains are less known and visited by tourists because of their position between the Ceahlau Mountain and Cheile Bicazului. The beauty of these places is presented more in the books of our greatest writers. The only way to really feel how beautiful and unique this place is would be to walk across it, to climb the abrupt valleys, to follow the cold mountain rivers. This is the way to know the traditions and customs of this place, to breathe the same air as the people who are living here, to experience a piece of what it means to live in the mountains.

Location: the Tarcau Mountains are part from the central group of the Eastern Carpathians and are located on two counties: the south-west part of the Neamt County and the north-west part of the Bacau County. The length of these mountains is about 65 km, 40 km width and approximately 1810 square km. the natural borders of these mountains are the Bicaz Valley to the north, Damuc Valley to the west, the Trotus Valley to the south and the Bistrita and Tazlau valleys to the east.

Access: the nearby towns and villages: town Piatra-Neamt, commune Tarcau, commune Viisoara, commune Pangarati, town Bicaz, commune Tasca, Bicazu-Ardelean, commune Bicaz-Chei, commune Damuc, commune Roznov, commune Borlesti, commune Tazlau.

The climate: the Tarcau Mountains have a climate common to all the middle size mountains, with harsh winters and short cold springs. The best moments for tourists to visit these places are in the summer in the months of August and September (because of the warm temperatures and only few drops of rain) and in the winter in the months of December and January (because of the thick layer of snow that is suited for winter sports).

The Rivers: In this area we encounter rivers that flow on the surface (in a proportion of about 70-80%) and underground rivers in a proportion of 20-30%. The most important rivers from this place are: Bistrita, Bicaz, Tarcau, Trotus and Asaul.

The Lakes: the three important lakes in this area are Vaduri (waters that fill the lake: Secu, Vaduri and Pangaracior), Pangarati (waters that fill the lake: Oantu and Pangarati) and Batca Doamnei (waters that fill the lake: Agarcia, Batca Doamnei, Valea Mica – “The Small Valley” and Sarata).
