My partner and I did this walk in early April. The drive to the visitor station was suited for a 4wd car, however, we managed to get there in our little Renault.
They supplied us with waterproof boots and walking poles which was a great help. Waterproof footwear is a must!!
Finally, the walk is amazing. Very beautiful and we got told of many stories relating to the caves.
Definitely recommend!

It was a great experience, pure and wonderful untouched nature. Our contact person from the travel agency Carpathian Escapes was Albert Isphahan, he speaks German very well, he welcomed us at the airport very friendly and open minded and transferred us to the starting point for the trail and back again. At the last day we enjoyed a short guidance through Brasov, what was very ineresting.
The trail was guided by an experienced guide, Lazslo Romfeld, who was very friendly and you felt absolutely savety everytime. The horses were of good condition, well educated, save and friendly. We faced a great hospitality, away from massive tourism in the middle of nowhere. It was REAL holiday, away of business life and any kind of luxury, you do not need. We can surely recommend this fascinating trail for every good rider as riding in this landscape requests more than only basic rinding experiences, you should be save and educted in cross country riding. If so this trail is not exhaustive at all but only an amazing experience!

We visited the most beautiful places of Transylvania thanks to the Romanian travel agency Carpathian Escapes. We enjoyed a lot the itinerary "tailored made" for our family mixing leisure (hiking, watching bears,...) and visits of the rich Transylvania cultural heritage (Cluj, Brasov, Saxon churches, Sighisoara, craft, …). I would definitely recommend it!
The support provided (roadbook, local guides) and the accommodation booked by Carpathian Escapes was excellent during our stay of 2 weeks.
