Know More about this tour

Experience the wonders of nature in a beautiful one day tour. Depart from Bucharest and head towards Prahova Valley. This is the valley where the Prahova river makes its way between the Bucegi and the Baiu Mountains, in the Carpathian Mountains. Geographically, the Prahova river separates the Eastern Carpathians chain from the Southern Carpathians. Historically, the corridor was the most important passageway between the principalities of Wallachia and Transylvania.

Once you arrive in Busteni youwill first visit one of the most popular caves from Romania - Ialomitei Cave and the Monastery Pestera located in National Park of Bucegi. After that you will ride the cable car up the mountain until you reach the beautiful Bucegi Plateau where wind and rain have turned the rocks into spectacular figures such as the Sphinx and Babele. The Bucegi is believed to be the Dacian holy mountain Kogainon, on which the God Zalmoxis resided in a cave.

Transfer back to Bucharest in the evening.

  • Great tour but with the unfortunate bad weather in the mountain.
    However the tour guide made everything he could to show me other places and he was very detailed and knowledgeable.
    Good english but at little bit pricey for what it was.

    The only minor complain was that it took me until the very last day to get this tour confirmed, so I was freaking out a bit.
    It ended up being good.
    Thank you and recommended!

  • I combined this tour with my longer 7 day tour and it was amazing! Affordable, not over the top, the guide was professional, kind, went my pace and gave me useful information about Romania with respect to history, culture and the surroundings. There is nothing like being at the top of the Carpathian Mountains!
