Mountains Bucegi

Unlike other Romanian mountain ranges, the Bucegi mountain range is not a mountain ridge, but a plateau that drops steeply into the valley on three sides. Due to the calcareous sub-caldera, the mountain is rich in karst phenomena, including caves.

These are freely accessible to the public. For this reason, the mountain is very popular with hikers and climbers, who find ideal terrain for climbing the plateau walls. There are also hiking resorts here, which is a very rare phenomenon in the Romanian mountains. In the forests of the Bucegi Mountains, it is also possible to encounter large carnivores, such as bears.
