What people are saying about Western Romania

Timely transport - note that BUS/VAN MAY NOT BE MARKED. Both me and the driver were standing around eachother for 20 minutes because I was looking for a marked transport. Slight misscommunication as I wanted to take the gondola both ways but he ended up driving to the top just because communicating in English was not 100%. Besides those small mess ups though, good transport, quick and clean, and driver was very nice.

Good driver, interesting scenery. Possibly make a short stop on the route. The approx. 45 min. The last part of the hike to the waterfall is very rocky, steep and only for experienced hikers.
