Romania, Banatului Mountains, Ochiul Beiului, Beusnita

Intro
The Nerei Gorge are the most beautiful gorges from Banatului Mountains which are located in the Eastern Carpathians (or Romanian Carpathians), in the west part of Romania being part of Southern Romanian Carpathians; they are often associated with a subgroup of Western Romanian Carpathians. The region I refer is Aninei Mountains, which are located between the DN57 (Moldova Noua) national road and DN57B (Anina, Oravita), at about 30km of Moldova Noua and 25km of Oravita, in the Caras-Severin county.

Objectives
This 1-day route starts from Sasca Romana, passes a wooden bridge and follows for 1 hour the track named "La Tunele" ("@Tunnels"); then arrives at "Podul Beiului" (bridge) and turns to the left following the Beiului river to Ochiul Beiului (lake) and Cascadele Beusnita (waterfalls) markers.
Between the objectives:
- the tunnels from "La Tunele"; I counted a number of 7 tunnels, from which the longest one has about 50m;
- Podul Beiului - the start point to Ochiul Beiului (lake), Cascadele Beusnita (waterfalls) and Cheile Nerei (gorges);
- Cascada La Vaioaga (waterfall);
- Valea Beiului (valley) with camping and trout farm;
- Ochiul Beiului (lake);
- Cascadele Beusnitei (waterfalls);
All the objectives are part of "Cheile Nerei-Beusnita" National Park.

  2. Yes indeed, there are more to say about this "piece of heaven". I just tried a short briefing here... anyhow, your comment is 50 percent on topic and 50 percent commercial - so you have to excuse me, but I do not intend to make a commercial blog here ;)
