On Ceahlău paths from Bicazu Ardelean to Dochia Chalet

The tourist route that we propose starts from Bicazul Ardelean, until Telec village, about 4.5 km on paved road. At a roadside we’ll find a wooden church dedicated to Saint Dumitru, with original interior paintings who wear its hat from 1692, that we can visit. Once in Telec we can visit the wooden church which is dedicated to Exaltation of the Holy Cross, built in 1880. Both churches are historical monuments. From Telec, from the confluence of the creek Bistra with creek Jidan, we go on the communal road that links the Telec …
