The Şopot waterfall in the Poiana Ruscă Mountains

The Şopot waterfall is located in the Poiana Poiana Ruscă Mountains, Romania. From Poieni, which is the last village before the waterfall, you’ll have to drive approximately 5 km on a forest road which is not asphalted. Don’t worry, you wont need a 4×4 car in order to get there.

Once you will arrived next to the sign which points to the Şopot waterfall, you will have to make a small hike to the waterfall because it’s located in the forest. The path is marked so you will find it very easily. Next to the waterfall you will find some wooden benches where you can take a short brake after the hike.

This Şopot waterfall is not as popular as the Bigăr waterfall but I highly recommend it, especially if you are in the area.
