Overview

Situated in the heart of the Bucegi Mountains and reaching the highest altitude in Romania a cable has reached– 2050 m, Sinaia Gondola can be seen as the transition point between sky and earth, between beautiful and spectacular. The 1000-1400 section of Sinaia Gondola starts from Furnica neighborhood, reaching 1400 elevation. This section was opened in 2007, having 34 gondolas, each being able to carry up to eight people. The length of this section is 1312 meters. The maximum transportation capacity is 1700 people / hour and the gondolas are provided with external pockets for skis and snowboards. The 1400-2000 section of Sinaia Gondola is one of the latest and most performant cable installations from Europe and around the Globe, merging the two ski areas from Sinaia: the low and high altitude ski areas. Being equipped with ultramodern functioning systems and the latest technology in its field, the 1400-2000 section of Sinaia Gondola has two diesel engines and the latest energy saving system, named Direct Drive, which ensures a 20% reduction in electricity consumption as against traditional systems. This new section of Sinaia Gondola establishes three national records: the installation reaches the highest altitude in Romania – 2050 meters; in Valea cu Brazi area it reaches the biggest height from the ground ever recorded by an installation of this kind, 120 meters; this installation crosses the steepest segment of a cable installation – 45 degrees at the first three pylons. Soarelui Chairlift was developed for the slopes on the west side, being a modern cable installation with 85 chairs. The retractable cupola, ecological red leather seather, alongside with the silent engines offer tourists the most confortable chairlift trips from Romania. Partia Noua skilift is a babyski set for people learning how to ski or snowboard. It is situated at the end of Partia Noua slope. Throughout the skilift’s distance there is a nocturne installed which is perfectly suited for extended skiing or snowboarding days.

Thank you for your review! :) The view is indeed unexpected especially on the Carp Gondola (1400-2000), and truly mesmerizing on clear sky days. We are happy that you enjoyed your time!
