This glacier lake is probably one of the most beautiful spots of nature I have ever seen. Nerver changed over the years, impassible at political or time dramatic events, the lake surrounded by Fagaras mountains still amazes me.

The lake is a nice place to stop. There are plenty of photo opportunities and places to walk. For the active you can hike up the many hills surrounding the lake and for those looking for a slightly less challenging walk there are a number...More

The lake is very nice, but I saw lots of trash thrown by the people who visit, and it seemed to be old, so probably nobody is taking care of the shores. Lots of souvenir stalls where you can buy local farmer products.

We reached the lake at around 4:30 PM. It was fairly busy and not too remarkable. We spent around 20 minutes walking around, took a few photographs and we left the area. It is worth a stop, but do not think it is worth coming...More

One of the places worth visiting since it is on Transfagarasan highway but the fact that many points of sale of local products were opened, its beauty was diminished, producing an overcrowding of people and cars.

Balea Glacier Lake offer some breaktaking views. If you have couple of hours to stay you can climb and have spectacular views of the mountains and lake. Just take some proper shoes. From the top you will see the war between humans and nature. Buildings...More

We went there two families with children aged 4-12. All had a great time! The road is amazing and to see snow on July was quite an attraction. Try to avoid weekends, it is too crowded.

Went to Balea Cascada and took the cable car to Balea Lac because the Transfagarasan Road was not yet opened. The building of the Cable Car station is a shame. Dirty in the extreme, with pieces of old furniture spread over more like in a...More
