What to Expect
In this tour, you can admire the wonders of nature. The tour starts in Bucharest and heads towards Prahova Valley, where the Prahova River makes its way between the Bucegi and the Baiu Mountains into the Carpathian Mountains. Prahova river separates the Eastern Carpathians chain from the Southern Carpathians. Historically, this corridor was the most important passageway between the principalities of Wallachia and Transylvania.

Once we arrive in Busteni city, you will ride the cable car up the mountain until you reach the beautiful Bucegi Plateau. Here, you can admire the spectacular figures such as the Sphinx and Babele carved in rock. The figures were naturally “carved” by the wind and rain.

The "Cross on Caraiman" is a monument built between 1926 and 1928 on Caraiman Peak at an altitude of 2,291 meters that commemorates the railway heroes who died on duty in World War I fighting against the armies of the Central Powers. The cross is 28 meters high and it has 2 arms, each 7 meters. The cross was recognized in 2014 by Guinness World Records as being the tallest summit cross in the world situated at such an altitude. The cross was erected at the initiative of Marie of Edinburgh and King Ferdinand of Romania in order to be seen from a large distance. Transfer back to Bucharest
