This is an amazing place, which can be seen while you visit Neamt County, Romania. If you visit this place in summer it is a very good chance to take a picnic, or make a ride with boat.

Stunning place. A great place for all of the family. God food and you kan do some shopping of local things. The road up to the lake is really something else, it runs up the mountain and is very steep at some points.

The trail toward Suhardul Mic is very easy and the view from the top deserves all the effort. The trail starts somewhere behind Hotel Turist and in less than 1 hour you'll reach the peak so you can overlook the Red Lake... More
