Family hike: Hoghilag – Prod
Hoghilag, ieșirea spre satul Prod
20 august 2023, 05:30:00
Dear nature lovers,
We will start from the Hoghilag exit towards the village of Prod, where we will leave the cars, and briefly follow a communal road, then enter the forest. We will follow a winding path, trying to stay as much as possible in the shelter of the trees, and we will only exit the forest near the entrance to Prod. Immediately after entering the village we will follow the South direction, past a lake, and enter the forest again. We will follow a path on the side of the hill, at one point turning to the South-West, and after descending, we will soon reach the place where we left the cars.
For the effort made, we will reward ourselves with a visit to the fortified Church of Hoghilag and take the opportunity to participate in the Tuberose Festival, an event that fills the village with color and fragrance.
The hike is suitable for physically fit people and children at least 10 years old, who have traveled mountain trails before.
