Event info

RXC 2021, a chill competition during hot summer days. First edition of a new and exciting series, Chupacabra Edition, waits for you to enjoy the beautiful Hateg Country.

Flying site

Clopotiva is part of the Retezat National Park (http://retezat.ro), one of the highest and most beautiful mountain ranges in Romania. The highest peak is Peleaga, altitude 2509 meters. It's a peak that can be reached fairly easy, crossing from Pelegii meadow. On the way you will pass Bucura lake (the largest glacial lake in Romania, with a surface of almost 90 000 square meters) which can be admired in all its splendor from the top of Peleaga's 2509 meters.

The Retezat mountains are part of the Souterns Carpathians, located in the Retezat-Godeanu mountain chain. They rise between two major valleys, Petrosani and Hateg and lay between two major rivers, Raul Mare which it borders to the north and east and Jiul de Vest which it borders to the south. They are surrounded by the Tarcu mountains to the west, the Godeanu mountains to the south-west and Valcan mountains to the south.

The nearest town close to Clopotiva is Hateg, located in the Hateg valley, which is well suited for flatland flying when it’s overdevelopment in the mountains or a very low cloudbase. Good flying place both for beginners and for more advanced pilots who want to fly over the most beautiful natural reservations in Romania. Beautiful flights were made at Clopotiva, over the mountain or in the plains, on the shoulder of ridges descending from the main ridge.
