Mihnea Prundeanu. Alpinist. Geographer. Mountain Guide.

I love the mountains and the sports. I also love to travel, to discover the beauty of nature, to meet new people and learn about different cultures. My semi-nomadic lifestyle revolves around my family and my two passions: alpinism and geography, that have blended so well together. I believe that authentic alpinism means exploration, discovery of new ways of getting to the top, minimalist, fast and clean ascents and these are the values I try to reflect in my personal projects.

My passion for the mountains started when I was a child when I would often make small excursions around the city or go camping with the scouts. Since then I visited or guided expeditions in the Himalayas, Cordillera Blanca and other remote areas. When I am not involved in personal projects I enjoy sharing my passion for the mountains with those wishing to discover it. To get in touch, you can write at mihnea@mihneaprundeanu.com.

Dupa o zi de pauza in care ne-am transformat in turisti si am vizitat Lublijana am ajuns in zona Kotecnik si am campat la ferma Tratnik. Totul era foarte familiar, parca eram in Apuseni, pe langa o gospodarie cu animale, livezi de pomi fructiferi si utilaje de prelucrare a lemnului dar si cu gazde la [...]

Osp, Misja Pec, Crni Kal sau 3 in 1 in Slovenia

La "marginea" Sloveniei, la cativa kilometri mai la sud de orasul Trieste din Italia se afla mica asezare Osp, una dintre cele mai cunoscute zone de escalada din aceasta tara. In Osp am ajuns in ultima zi de miercuri a lunii august si in toiul noptii ne-am stabilit tabara de baza pentru urmatoarele zile in campingul Vovk. Dimineata ne-a trezit cantatul cocosului, cand am iesit din cort ne-au intampinat pisicile si cateii gazdelor noastre iar peste tot in jurul nostru domnea o atmosfera rurala foarte linistita. Satul este foarte pitoresc, casele vechi din piatra sunt frumos intretinute si decorate cu [...]
