Welcome to Bucegi Mountains
Rising to 2505m at their tallest, the Bucegi Mountains are popular with hikers for their unspoiled scenery. This raw wilderness comes with perils: there's a sizeable population of bears and some trails are poorly marked. The Bucegi have a decent network of cabanas to shelter, eat or sleep in, but preparation is key in this high-altitude adventure playground. June to September is best for hiking (though thunderstorms are common). Winters are severe and avalanches are a particular peril during the thaw.
