2 Day Hiking Trip in Bucegi Mts: The Sphinx & Omu Peak

Marian With: Marian 59
Ready for an adventure? On this 2 day hiking tour we'll cross Bucegi Mountains from one side (Sinaia) to the other (Bran) by going all the way up to an "air bridge" at 2,000m altitude! Along the way you'll see the famous Sphinx, Babele and Caraiman Cross and admire the beauty of Bucegi Natural Park. We can also summit Omu Peak at 2,505m if you're up for it!

Moments to expect in the trekking tour in Bucegi Mountains:

  • Going up to Bucegi Plateau

    Going up to Bucegi Plateau

    We drive from Brasov to the beautiful mountain resort of Sinaia (or meet you there) where the impressive Bucegi Mts close the horizon. You leave your main bag in the car and from 1,400m altitude we can take a cable car to 2,000m to Bucegi Plateau or hike 3h uphill to get there (medium difficulty). Either way, the views will be beautiful!

  • See Caraiman Cross, and the Carpathian Sphinx and Babele rocks

    Once on the plateau we'll go for a hike to see the famous sights of Bucegi Mountains. There are lots of legends and folk stories surrounding the unusual Sphinx and Babele rock formations - and when you'll see them you'll understand why! Then we move on to Caraiman Cross, an impressive monument dedicated to fallen soldiers during WWI overlooking Prahova Valley and offering superb views of Eastern Romania.
    Total hiking time 6-8h; medium difficulty; 500m uphill/downhill altitude difference

  • Summit Omu Peak (2,505 m)

    Summit Omu Peak (2,505 m)

    If you're in great shape and looking for a hiking challenge - and the weather is good - on day 1 we can summit Omu Peak, the highest in Bucegi! We stop for lunch at Omu hut and admire the views before returning to our accommodation (depending on itinerary).
    Total hiking time 9-10h; medium-high difficulty; 600m uphill/downhill altitude difference

  • [Day 2] Descend to Bran / Moeciu area

    [Day 2] Descend to Bran / Moeciu area

    Time to descend from the high mountains on the other side of Bucegi! You can choose a shorter and easier trail if you also want to make it in time to visit Bran Castle or a longer, more challenging trail if you want to keep exploring the Bucegi Natural Park and see other impressive natural sights along the way (Valea Cerbului, glacial valleys)!
    Total hiking time: 4-5h or 7-8h; medium-hard difficulty; uphill/downhill 400-900m or 1300-1800m

  • [Tour extension] Extra day in Bucegi or hike in Piatra Craiului

    [Tour extension] Extra day in Bucegi or hike in Piatra Craiului

    As this trip is private you can extend it with 1 day&night so you spend more time hiking in Bucegi Natural Park (eg. to Bolboci Lake or Cheile Tatarului). Or if you choose to descend on the other side to Moeciu / Bran area, we can do spend the night there so the next day we go hiking in Piatra Craiului Natural Park, which is absolutely stunning! We can go in Cheile Zarnestiului, up to Curmatura Hut, summit the highest peak or explore villages. Your main luggage will be transferred.
