We hiked to Omul approximately 2.5 hours over moderate to difficult terrain. Views are fantastic with rocks and animals. The whole environment and ambiance go together for an amazingly unique experience. (source: google)
Regardless the weather this nature park is beautiful and mystical. Let's help keep this place clean and healthy. (source: google)
Amazing landscape in the Carpathian Mountains. The views are breathtaking, the air is clean. Wild animals can still be seen, especially the Carpathian Brown Bear (Ursus arctos arctos). Road state is on the downside, but it is part of the local picture. (source: google)
Amazing hikes in the area. Prepare well (have the right equipment) before you go and research propperly. It can be tricky in some areas. (source: google)
It is safe to say that the park is amazing. The views are beautiful on the mountains and the forest is calm and peaceful. You can do little day hikes through the woods, stride out and summit the peaks, or camp on the mountain and walk across multiple days to see all that you can. (source: google)
