The Bucegi Mountains NameThe exact origin of the name "Bucegi" is disputed by philologists. "Buceag" or "bugeac" seems to be the source of the name, a word designating in the language of mountain people both the moss in the forest and the wilderness or the junipers. Archaic version of the name "Bucegi" is "Buceci", name still used today by elders in the mountains, and about which linguists say it's derived from "huceag", "buceag" or "bugeac".Linguist Sextil Pușcariu claims that the name of Bucșoi, one of the mountains that reach the Omu Peak, derives from "Buc", "Bucur", just as "Buceci", "Bugeci" derives from "Buc" with the same suffix like "Măneciu" or "Moeciu". And "Bucur" is a genuine Dacian name. In Iorgu Iordan's work, Toponimia romînească, the name of the mountains is derived from Slavic buk, meaning "beech".RangesThe mountains are grouped in three ranges: Bucegi Mountains (Omul Peak - 2505 meters) Leaota Mountains (Leaota Peak - 2133 meters) Piatra Craiului Mountains (Baciului Peak - 2238 meters) The Bran Pass separates the Piatra Craiului and Leaota ranges; it was marked by border crossings between Wallachia and Transylvania, and was defended by the Bran Castle.Before you head to Sinaia, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Sinaia trip itinerary planning tool , to make sure you see all that Sinaia has to offer, including Cabana Babele.

Cabana Babele Reviews
Αξίζει να επισκεφτείτε το βουνό άμα βρίσκεστε στη Σινάια.Έχει τελεφερίκ με 40-50 λει αλλά θα σας ανταμείψει σίγουρα η θέα και το πράσινο της περιοχής more »It is worth to visit the mountain if you are in Sinaia. It has a cable car with 40-50, but it will definitely reward the view and the green of the area
Поднимались фуникулером и гуляли на плато. Прекрасная природа. Красивые фотографии. Незобываемые впечатления. Хорошая пешая прогулка. Минус только один - большая очередь на фуникулер. more »Climbed funicular and walked on the plateau. It's beautiful nature. Beautiful photos. Unsoable impressions. Good walking. Minus only one - a big queue for a funicular.
Dirty place , unfortunately. This could be a great place if would a little interest from the owners.
The cabana was fully booked and instead of trying to help us they just told us to go somewhere else (this was after hiking up the mountain all day with 15 kg backpacks). You're also not allowed to camp outside. We had some lunch there but it wasn't very good and tasted a lot like vinegar. Hot chocolate was made with water.
