Best location to stay for hiking in Ceahlau Massif area?

I'm having trouble deciding where to stay near Ceahlau Massif. We will have about 2 days in the area and want to see the Bicaz gorge and spend a day hiking. Not sure...Is Piatra Neamt the best central location? Or Bicaz? Or one of the cabanas - any suggestions?

Thank you!

I'd say stay in Bicaz or in the resort Durau (it's about 20 km by road from Bicaz, literally in the Ceahlau massif).

Hi,

If you want to hike on Ceahlau from Izvorul Muntelui and also see other natural wonders like Cheile Bicazului you should accommodate in Izvorul Muntelui. You can also accommodate in Durau but you'll have to travel longer distances to reach other interesting points. If you decide to stay in Durau the most interesting hike would be by Duruitoarea Fall - Dochia Chalet.

Let me know if you want more details about the hiking routes from Ceahlau ( or Cheile Bicazului)

Accommodations in Izvorul Muntelui:

Accommodations in Durau:

Accommodations in Bicaz:

If you have a car you can also accommodate near Piatra Neamt:

Thanks
