An adventure filled motorcycle tour in Romania

The Transbucegi is part of the 3 best roads you can take during your motorcycle tour of Transylvania. After completing the 3 roads your motorcycle adventure in Romania will be complete. Some stretches will be even the better than the two other more famous roads, the Transalpina and Transfagarasan.
On the way back you can choose to continue your motorcycle tour towards Padina. The tarmac ends and it becomes gravel. You can have lunch or take the cable-car from Padina Plateau and go to the peak of the Bucegi Mountains. Here you can visit the curious rock formation called ‘The Old Hags (Babele)’ and ‘The Sphinx’.
