The Bucegi Mountains NameThe exact origin of the name "Bucegi" is disputed by philologists. "Buceag" or "bugeac" seems to be the source of the name, a word designating in the language of mountain people both the moss in the forest and the wilderness or the junipers. Archaic version of the name "Bucegi" is "Buceci", name still used today by elders in the mountains, and about which linguists say it's derived from "huceag", "buceag" or "bugeac".Linguist Sextil Pușcariu claims that the name of Bucșoi, one of the mountains that reach the Omu Peak, derives from "Buc", "Bucur", just as "Buceci", "Bugeci" derives from "Buc" with the same suffix like "Măneciu" or "Moeciu". And "Bucur" is a genuine Dacian name. In Iorgu Iordan's work, Toponimia romînească, the name of the mountains is derived from Slavic buk, meaning "beech".RangesThe mountains are grouped in three ranges: Bucegi Mountains (Omul Peak - 2505 meters) Leaota Mountains (Leaota Peak - 2133 meters) Piatra Craiului Mountains (Baciului Peak - 2238 meters) The Bran Pass separates the Piatra Craiului and Leaota ranges; it was marked by border crossings between Wallachia and Transylvania, and was defended by the Bran Castle.

  • Pre-season... April... a great sun, but still in the snow. Very entertaining... and a gondola that takes your breath away, to go up to more than 2000 meters in 10 minutes. The advantage...? No queue! The downside...? Not possible to just visit, because of residual snow! But a good relaxing time.

  • We took the cable car who is 70 Ron round trip and we arrived on top. The view is amazing. You feel on top of the world. By a short walking distance you can visit the sfinx and Babele some rocks forma...  more »
  • Against all critisism stating the Sphinx in just nothing more than a blown-up hype, I decided to go anyway thru the cable car in Busteni. The fact that the "Sphinx" is not much of a deal got confirmed...  more »

  • It's a very nice place to crash in after a long tour of the Bucegi mountains (one of the very few places that serve food and drinks around). The rooms are clean but very basic, we booked one for 2 persons with our own bathroom. Don't expect much. They don't heat the rooms during summer, so there are nights when you might feel cold.
  • Ok!
  • Great place to spend night in bucegi mountains
  • Nice
  • Wellcoming people. They have great soup
