    This hiking trip from Cluj-Napoca will be full of adventure: we will pass through caves, hold on to chains and go through narrow passages to get to the other side. We trek through virgin forests and make our way to the top of the cliffs to admire beautiful views of Romania's Carpathian Mountains! You will also experience the 'outlaw' feeling because this is where the anti-communist resistance went into hiding from the feared Securitate!
