Full description
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 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. 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.Transfer back to Bucharest.
