Worth taking a trip up there, disappointing to see it surrounded by works, an excavator, and lots of steel bars laying on the ground... Trekking up there is a nice outdoor activity, taking the difficult path equally rewarding with its scenery and less people, as...More

Builded between 1926-1928 at 2.291 m altitude, has a heigh of 36 m, very imposing and easy to access from Busteni. After going up with the cable car, it’s about 1.5 hours of pretty easy walk to get to the base.

When you go to Romania, definitelly visit this small mountain city. I love it everytime i go there. Hicking to Crucea Caraiman may not be for everyone though. The trip is exhausting but worth it

If you climbing on the mountains ,is very important to visit this monument of war heroes. I know is very difficult to arrive up to it, but all efforts will be forget when you will have a wonderful view and see this art monument

The hiking to the cross offers very beautiful landscapes over the Bucegi mountains. The cross itself is in the Guinness Book as the tallest cross at over 2000 metres altitude. The view over the Prahova Valley is also impressive.

Definitely worth taking the trip there, either the long way on foot (we hiked from the cabin starting point in Busteni on Valea Jepilor, to Caraiman hut and then the cross, approx 4 hours in total), or the quicker way (cable-car to Babele and then...More
