The cable car itself can be much better maintained. But it deserves to take a ride for the breath taking views while going up and specially up. On good weather and weekend, expect to loose couple of hours in the line!

Every time I take the cable car from Busteni to the top station, I'm amazed by the breathtaking view of the mountain.

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....

The cable car is a great way to get to the top of the mountain. You'll get to see the Sphinx and the "Babele"

If you want to go up, be sure to queue 1 hour before the scheduled opening, if you want to stay as little as possible in line. This would be the case if you don't want to climb to Babele by foot. The queue time...More

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
