Trekking in the Caras Gorges, Private Tour from Timisoara

This backpacking tour will take you through the wild and adventurous gorges of the Caras river. In the first day we hike our way up the Caras river until we reach the Prolaz Meadow. Along the way we will stop to see some caves and other points of attraction. At the Prolaz Meadow we will see the main attraction, the Caras canyon, after which we stop for a quick lunch. We continue above the gorges, across the Iabalcea hill, and arrive at the Comarnic cave. Here we set our camp, build the campfire and prepare a traditional pot dinner cooked over the fire.

In the second day, after breakfast we will enter and visit the Comarnic Cave. After that we will visit the upper part of the Caras Gorges, via an old railway path built through the mountain. Later we head back towards the place where we parked our car and then make a short stop at the Caras Citadel to enjoy a splendid view over the entire Caras Gorges. On our way back to Timsioara, we can stop for dinner in Resita.
