This is the second time we've been here. But this time we were with the children.
We got up the mountain with the cable car.
The place is amazing .... difficult to describe in words. The day before, the first snow fell here, so the views were even more magnificent.
This is a must visit site. Suitable for children of all ages.

Some blue, sky some clouds, and some low clouds all enhance the beauty of the area. The view of the lake with the mountains in the background was spectacular with a clear cool water and the restaurant exterior made a perfect picture. It would be exciting to see it in the winter to see snow and a frozen lake but I think anytime of the year it is worth the trip up.

Dress for chiller temperatures because with the mountains and the lake it is cooler with a good breeze. Be careful walking around as the ground is rather soft and places due to moisture and light snow melt. This can lead to some slippery conditions

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. Amazing experience. Totally recommend!

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.

There could be a dense fog around a lake but a weather could change fast. There are booths and restaurant so you can have a good time there :)

At the lake the temparature could be low (10-15 °C) even in summer.
