On the end of April we appeared in winter mountains. Few meter of snow, ice sculptures and frozen lake. Wonderful.

The experience was successful.
The cable car view did it for us. From the bottom of the mountain to the frozen lake, lunch at the restaurant - hot soup and gulash closed the matter for the better.

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 down when they're ready.

up, after you get out from the cable care, it is fantastic.
the main issue in peak season is related to cable car itself. if you are not there at 9:00 - 9:15, you wait between 1h30' and 4h.

you are already soul rejoicing happy driving up the Transfargasen and then you stop at the lake on top for a break.. such a welcome sight, it so pretty and leaves a lasting impression of freshness.. pristine snow melt lake, not some place you get to spend your time at, every random day.. totally worth it..
