You are now on hikers territory, this being the place where numerous adventures begin on the many mountain trails. You can have a pleasant walk to enjoy the beautiful scenery and take lots of pictures with one of the most beautiful mountain lakes in Romania.
Bâlea Lake is not popular only in the sunny months, during wintertime this is the location for the Hotel of Ice, which, as the name says, welcomes guests in rooms made completely out of ice.
