Poiana Stânii or Bucegi Natural Park?


I want to visit this summer Sinaia and Peles castle.

I saw that near the Sinaia is the nature reserve Poiana Stânii and Bucegi Natural Park. How far they are from each other? Is it possible to go from the Peles castle to the reserve Poiana Stânii on foot? Is it safe for bears?

Is it possible to continue to go up, I want to climb the mountain, even a little, not to the end? I saw on their website http://www.bucegipark.ro/ routes, but I do not understand where they start and whether it is possible to do this without a personal car to get there. Please help me.

Bucegi natural park practically means the whole Bucegi mountains, which start right next to Sinaia.

Poiana Stanii is "in" the Bucegi mountains and can be reached on foot (about one hour walk from Peles castle).

You can continue from Poiana Stanei higher up into the mountains - for instance you can go on to Piatra Arsa chalet, a ~2 hours hike.

Bears do exist in the area, it's better to hike in a group.
