Description

Transylvania Hiking the “OM” Peak & Yoga Retreat

For those that like activities this is a retreat packed with them, and some added relaxation which you will indeed need. You may see them in our photos but our retreat overlooks the Piatra Craiului Mountains, a mountain range in the Southern Carpathians.

In Romanian “Piatra Craiului” means “Prince’s Stone”. The Piatra Craiului mountains form a narrow and saw-like ridge, which is about 25 km (16 mi) long. The highest elevation in the massif is the “Vârful La Om” at 2,238 metres (7,343 ft), the “OM” peak.

Hence, we’re going to attempt to summit the “OM” peak in 1 day. This is a both challenging and rewarding climb done at a steady pace with an experienced mountain guide. On your way up the mountain you may spot some wildlife, and incredible views!

These mountains are also quite famous as you may have seen them in the movie “Cold Mountain” which was shot not too far away from us. If it’s good enough for Nicole Kidman, it’s good enough for us.

Cuisine

Our delicious plant-based menu is designed to fortify your overall health and wellbeing using organic unprocessed seasonal produce with the highest nutrient content possible. Our food is not only delicious and easily digested but deeply nourishing, sustaining, healing and energy-boosting.

How to get here

Our village is called Pestera which means the cave in Romanian. It is named after a beautiful bat cave that is a five-minute stroll from our centre. The Village is part of the National Park of Piatra Craiului, a majestic chain of mountains and forest valleys that still harbour an abundance of wildlife from bears to mountain goats and more. 7km away is one of the most debated Transylvanian icon, Dracula’s castle in Bran.

Fly to Bucharest International Airport, and then make your way to Brasov by train or taxi. We will arrange for a driver to come and collect you from Brasov.
