Such a nice area, but the team here only run the gondola when it suits them, or you pay them the equivalent of 10 people (300 lei one way) - nothing you can do about it, especially if you're up the top. You'll only go...More

The stop at Balea Lake on the Transfagarasan highway was a great decision. The view was amazing, as it was the highest point of the highway. So one could enjoy both the valley view of the highway and the gorgeous glacier lake at the top....More
It takes about an hour to climb the mountain but the scenery is amazing. It is possible to take a cable car and enjoy a magnificent view. The view of the lake at the top of the mountain is amazing and the atmosphere electrifying.

Haven't got vertigo so can't say how bad yours would be but we drove from the south end of the transfagarasan road so when we did drive up the steeper roads to the lake at the top we were on the right which was away from the side where the drop was so to speak. At the lake vertigo is no issue it is actually quite flat up there and for large parts of the drive you only see trees. It is only a small part of the whole journey where you are driving on open roads where you can see over the edge. Hope this helps.
