The delicious Formai de Mut is made at high altitude (between 1.200 and 2.300 meters), where cattle are taken in late spring. The most renowned version of this excellent cheese is produced during the summer when cows graze on pasture eating fresh grass and drinking water from the mountain creeks.

Cheeses are, by excellence, part of the South Carpathians culinary and cultural tradition and its diversity is given by its high pastures and specific production techniques. Our route goes from East towards West along the Cindrel Mountains and passes through stunning places!
