There's no direct public transport from Brasov to Balea lake. You will also have to do part of the route (from the Brasov-Sibiu road up to Balea waterfall) on foot or by hitchhiking, because on that part there's no form of public transport.

So catch a bus doing the Brasov-Sibiu route (some schedules are available here: www.autogari.ro/Transport/Brasov-Sibiu… ), get off at the junction near Carta village where the Transfagarasan road starts and hitchhike/walk from there onwards, either all the way to Balea lake or at least to Balea waterfall (where there's a cable car to Balea lake).

Or you can catch a bus to Fagaras, closest city, and then get a taxi from Fagaras to Balea Cascada (Balea Waterfall), this way the taxi won't be expensive.

Around 15°C during the day, under 10°C at night.

There's a high chance you will still find snow, especially in June..
