Awesome hike with great views! Hike: around 8 hours with breaks, loopThe hike starts at the ski piste of Rausor. First the trail (red stripe) will bring you into the forest. This will take around 1h to 1h30 and has some very steep paths. After the forest there is a place where you can get drinkable water. Then the rocky paths start, it is steep but okay to walk on to. Instead of climbing all the way up on the rocks, you can cross the rocks and take the path to the left. After the small path on the left, you will have to go up and use your hands for a steep climb. But the views are worth it! When you go all the way up, you will arrive a marker which shows you the way to the peak of Retezat. From this moment you follow the yellow striped signs. More steep than the other paths, it is possible to reach the top with feeth and hands and enjoy one of the most beautiful views of the national park! It took us around 4 to 5 hours to reach the top, with some breaks.
