If you want adrenaline and astonishing wiew, take the cable cabin to Babele at more than 2000m! Be ready for ear small problem and the difference between the places! From Babele you have more places to go like: Caraimanului Cross, Omul and others....

I only stopped in Busteni to take the cable car. It isn't that close to the train station, it takes about 15 minutes to walk there, or even more if it's covered in ice, as it was when I was there. The ride only happens...More

Using this way to go up on the mountains, you loose pleasure of climbing(hard) and pleasure to do a big effort(if want to consider a pleasure this ). You will see a nice view and fill very good using this cable transport

I really wouldn't recommend this cable car. During summer, waiting times can get up to 5 hours. If you're unlucky you spend all morning in a almost non-moving line (the same applies for when you want to go back down). There's only 1 car every...More

We were a bit disappointed with the service as it was pretty slow. Too expensive for the quality offered.
