Écsy L. Jánosmeditation route

Trekking / Tourist program


Șumuleu Ciuc - as the most important destination of pilgrims in the county – ”wove” many small pilgrim’s route around itself, with the aim to give opportunity for the people having arrived for several days, to spend a (half) day in nature, contemplating the flora and fauna with its visual and acoustic content. In this way, they can taste a different point of view and they can start looking at nature, at themselves and at their fellow being from another perspective.
The route commemorates János Écsy L., the monastery and provincial vicar, blessed with extraordinary abilities, who was imprisoned for his faith.
The route is similar with the Joannes Kájoni route up to the second saddle, namely, from the spring of sparkling mineral water it follows the track until the plateau between the two Șumuleu mountains, and it reaches the second saddle from the city side of the mountain. However, after reaching this point, the route goes up the mountain (to the south), going around the Big Șumuleu mountain without any great effort.
This is an easier route, where later a greater station of the cross could be established. Advised for children and beginners as well!
