Let's travel together #67 - Oașa Lake (Lacul Oașa)

in travelfeed •  5 months ago

If you would have to pick up a spot where you could run away anytime you feel like you need to put the life on pause, what would you choose?
Normally a lake won't be my answer but when there is a lake connected with the mountains, it definitely comes up on my list.
A lake has the power to carry you on the recesses of feelings which otherwise would be impenetrable, so just grab a beer and scroll down to discover together the story of

~Oașa Lake~

Oașa Lake is a man made lake hidden on Sureanu Mountains which you will meet on your trip to the famous Transalpina road that helps you discover the fascinating Romanian realms.
The lake is a water storage over the Sebeș River situated on the borders of Sibiu and Alba Counties, a lake that can't be neglected even though it's artificial.
The charming lake records some impressive sizes: 441ha surface with 136 mil. m3 water on the altitude of 1255m and it represents one of the most frequented places by tourists when they need to get lost in a very greenish place to relax.

If you are one of these guys who would prefer some activities in the nature rather than just relax, you have the opportunity to go on cycling, hiking, horse riding or even fishing as in the lake you will find trouts, chubs and some other tiny fishes.
The lake represents one of the most spectacular places connected with the nature which will welcome you with the relaxing trails through the mountains but also with lots of extremely beautiful landscapes.

Close to the lake you will meet people who spend most of their time here, preparing natural products with the help of the hives which are creating honey for tourists but also some other goodies like syrups, oil or just fresh mushrooms gathered from the forest.
Both of the sides that are surrounding the Oașa Lake can be crossed either while you are driving around or simply by taking a walk and admiring the beauty of the nature.

The lake is also known as one of the places from where many other trails to different touristic attractions are starting - so if you are going to visit this spot, take your time to also check out the following locations:

  • Vârful lui Pătru - the highest peak of the Sureanu Mountains;
  • Transalpina - also known as The King's Way represents one of the most fascinating roads surrounded by the wonderful mountains covered with a natural blanked of fir woods;
  • Oaşa Monastery - a very relaxing and peaceful place;
  • Luncile Prigoanei;
  • The Heaven's Gate - a glade which has in project to open soon some ski slopes;
  • Vârful Sureanu - yet another fascinating peak;
  • and many more..

The scenic landscape also called "The Little Switzerland" represents one of the most heavenish locations from Romania which year by year gets the chance to welcome increasingly more tourists from all over the world, very curious to discover this piece of paradise.
This action can bring a lot of happiness to the locals who are looking forward to meet the new travelers and show the sights, but there is also a project going where are invested around 32 millions EUR to modernize the place for trippers.

If you are wondering where you could sleep while you are visiting the Oașa Lake, there aren't so many opportunities because the project is at the beginning of development but there are a few guest houses and chalets around the lake.
Anyway you can always place your tent nearby and camp or just ask for locators to let you stay for a night or two, they would be more than honored to help you out.

Now talking about the ways to get there, you will need to follow one the next routes depending on which side are you coming from:

  • if you are coming from Sibiu: Salişte -> Tilişca -> Jina -> Şugag -> Oaşa;
  • if you are coming from Brezoi: Brezoi -> Voineasa -> Oaşa;
  • if you are coming from Ramincu Valcea: Horezu -> Novaci -> Oaşa;
  • if you are coming from Bucuresti: Ramnicu Valcea -> Brezoi -> Voineasa -> Oaşa.

beautiful lake...excellent blog!

If you are wondering where you could sleep

Duuuuuuuude! I just pictured myself going deep inside those forests to sleep at some hidden place with my tent.

What a beautiful place!

·

I would also recommend camping rather than renting a room :D

·
·

Yeah, but how about camping for ever? hahaha or for a long period of time? Would they kick you out?

·
·
·

Don't think so. I find it pretty cool and I don't think the locators would have something against it :D

·
·
·
·

Leeeeeeeeeeeeeeet's gooooooo! After one year they start to think "where the hell is Arthur, that brazilian guy"
And i'll be living waaay deep in the forest in my own hut hahahahaa

Great work!

It's interesting that there are so many new man made lakes and structures popping up over the last 10 or so years.

I guess that's one of the big challenges with the way we use land to create cities, we can lose part of the the natural landscape.

Thank you so much dear!

This Oașa Lake does look like a great destination for a getaway. So peaceful and serene! Just pinned it on my travel map. :) I’ve only been to the capital region in Romania - what a shame! You have a very nice travel blog here, love it!

·

There are also a few natural places you can enjoy while in Bucharest, I hope you enjoyed your stay :D
Thank you, you are too kind! :)

Great, great, great, great
great place, great post!
i just hope that "develop" does not imply too much alteration of the natural ecosystem of the place, all regions deserve that development but... sometimes where the balance is broken... and people just think in fast money...
Amazing job again Gaby

·

Yeah I hope too :)
Thank you! :D
