Photographer's Note

Bâlea Lake is a glacial lake situated high in the Fagaras Mountains of Transylvania set at a height of 2,034 m above sea level. The lake is simply stunning in the Summer and in the Winter when you will have a very different experience and would be more likely to stay in it’s seasonal ice hotel. In the Summer a twisting snake of a road leads you to the top of the mountains where the lake and it’s cabanas perch above the clouds. It is breath taking scenery at its most rugged and is an absolute must on any itinerary, any season. During the winter the only way up to the frozen lake is by cable car, which makes the site even more incredible when you arrive. There are plenty of activities to keep everyone occupied from snow mobiling and ice skating in the winter to trekking and swimming in the Summer.
