In the footsteps of Abel, that is, up to Harghita

Program description:
We will have our breakfast and then set off on an adventurous day. On this day we will visit one of the important regions of Szeklerland, Odorheiu Secuiesc/Székelyudvarhely. We are the first to taste the famous mineral water at Băile Homorod/Homoródfürdő, which even has a song written about, and which the whole area uses as drinking water. After a short rest, we set off for the “sacred mountain of the Szeklers”, which even inspired Tamási Áron (well known szekler writer).
With our vehicles we climb to an altitude of 1600 meters above sea level, where we are already greeted by an unparalleled panorama. Leaving our cars, we continue our tour on foot. After a 45-minute ascent, we reach the highest peak in Central Harghita, the 1801-meter-high Harghita-Mădăraș/Madarasi-Hargita peak. The view is wonderful, we can see almost the whole of Szeklerland, beautiful mountains, valleys and rivers.
On the way home we stop for a short time in Satu Mare/Máréfalva, where we get acquainted with the painted Szekler gates. These gates are among the most important symbols of the Szeklers, but here, in the Odorheiu Secuiesc/Székelyudvarhely region, they are even more characteristic, because people also paint them, so they are unique.
Return to the accommodation, dinner.
