I decided to hike up to the summit of Mt. Tampa while my friend chose to take the cable car. When I approached the sign warning of bear and wolf encounters, I pondered the safety of hiking alone but figured I would meet many other...More

We went in the beginning of November and the ground was quite slippery however the walk is still possible if you have the right shoes. Parking is good and it wasn't too busy. Shame we didn't see any animals though

If you visit Brasov, visit Tampa view point. It's extraordinary! Avoid going there in foggy days or cloudy sky. Just wait the day and prepare your camera. Enjoy!

We were excited to climb above Brasov by cable car. However the big cafe at the top is closed so the only view you get is actually from the cable car ride itself. There is a lovely walk up and down too but from that...More

Unless you are planning for a hike, otherwise, you can skip this. You can practically take the cable car up to the hill and hike down but if you do not plan to do this then it is not necessary to even take the ride...More

Beautiful mountain! Loved the cable car and then hiking back down. Beautiful trails. The leaves were changing color on the trees. Just gorgeous!

Worth the hike, even if your feet want to murder you afterwards. Definitely some good photos to be taken from up there.

If it's a fine clear day and you have time to spare in Brașov, take the cable car up to the top of Mount Tâmpa (pronounced 'Tümpa'). If you're energetic you can walk up and down, using a rough 'serpentine' or zigzag path, but be...More

Not being one for heights I was a little worried about the cable car trip, there was no need, it was a lovely smooth ride. The view on a clear day is amazing and today was pretty clear. Yes, there is an uneven walk to...More

I wouldn't say the place is hard to find, the hill itself is highly visible and the entrance at the bottom is well marked. As for the service, it could very well be improved, but you can easily ignore the buzzkill.
