Traveling the great mountain Ceahlău

From Izvorul Muntelui Chalet to the top of the massif




Ceahlău National Park offers a lot of opportunities for adventure hike, but also for discovering breathtaking landscapes. To reach the plateau of Ceahlău massif, there are seven trails available for tourists, three of which start from Izvorul Muntelui area.

One of the most frequented and also the shortest trail (around 3  1/2 hours) crosses the eastern side of the mountain. The trail starts near Izvorul Muntelui Chalet (797 m) crosses Lutu Roşu Hollow (1,020 m) and ends at Dochia Chalet (1,750 m).

Two other trails departing from Izvorul Muntelui are as such: one passes through Poiana Maicilor – Clăile lui Miron (this one is known as the most beautiful route starting from this area but also the longest one); the second trail goes towards  Dochia Rock (1185 m) then passes by Jgheabul cu Hotar and eventually ends at Dochia Chalet (1750 m) –  a beautiful trail with picturesque landscapes on Toaca Peack and Izvorul Muntelui Lake. Once the tourists reach the mountain plateau, they can whether camp in the tent or stay overnight at Dochia Chalet.

Ocolaşul Mare Peak (1907 m) and Toaca Peak (1,900 m) are the two peaks that dominate the Ceahlău massive.

Ceahlău, the “precious rock” of Moldova -as Dimitrie Cantemir called it almost three centuries ago (1716) in his well-known writing Descriptio Moldaviae- reigns in the middle of the Oriental Carpathians, in the west side of Neamţ County, where the most important trans-Carpathian trails meet.
