Private Day Hiking Trip to Tesna Gorges from Timisoara

In this trip, we will take you in the heart of the Mehedinți Mountains, where we will enjoy a pleasant hike along the tall walls and pine trees of the Țesna Gorges. We start off in the morning and head to the town of Băile Herculane and then up the Cerna Valley until we reach our starting point. We ascend through the forests until we reach the walls of the gorges. As we progress through the gorges, we enjoy the rocky scenery and wild nature. Along the way, there are several landmarks that we will stop by: an old watermill, a waterfall, and the canyon of the Țesna river. Our journey ends once we reach a sheepfold. Here we will stop for lunch and we can either dig in the good in our backpack or we can enjoy a shepherd's lunch. After that, we return to our car following the same path. In the evening, we can enjoy a traditional dinner and some thermal baths in Băile Herculane, which is famous for its hot water springs.
