1 or 2 Day Hiking Trip in Bucegi Mountains: Sphinx, Babele, Omu Peak

Dan With: Dan 2
Bucegi Mts are impressive, massive and fascinating: halfway between Bucharest and Brasov, they are home to Omu Peak (2nd highest in Romania at 2,514m), the Sphinx and Babele rock formations and Caraiman Cross. But the rugged cliffs, rocky valleys with drops of over 1,000m and breathtaking views attract many hikers looking for a challenge! Are you one of them?

Moments to expect in the Bucegi hiking trip:

  • [1-day tour] The Sphinx and Babele - a rocky mystery

    [1-day tour] The Sphinx and Babele - a rocky mystery

    After arrival in Busteni, we will get a transfer to the 2,000m plateau from where we start our 1h hike to the famous Sphinx and Babele formations. Shaped by wind, these rocks are the subject of many legends and myths in Romanian folk - and for good reason! When you admire them from up close, you'll quickly understand why!

  • [1-day tour] Heroes' Cross  and superb views!

    [1-day tour] Heroes' Cross and superb views!

    We hike another 1h to a ridge of Bucegi Massif where the 28m-high Caraiman Cross overlooks Prahova valley below from 2,291m. The Cross is a monument to the Romanian soldiers who fought in WW1 and offers breathtaking views of the entire area!

  • [2-day trip] Summit Omu Peak

    [2-day trip] Summit Omu Peak

    If you extend the Bucegi hiking tour to 2-days then we have enough time to hike up to Omu Peak at 2,514m altitude! We'll hike for about 3 hours to gain altitude (medium/difficult) but when we get to the top the effort will be worth it - you've conquered Romania's 2nd highest peak! We stay in the area overnight at Omu Hut with a well-deserved warm dinner! Next day we start our descent on a different and equally challenging route (6h).
