Hello,
Normally, it's about two hours, but it depends on what you wanna do or where u wanna stop.
Have a nice trip!
U DON T NEED DAYS JUST 1 HOUR AND A HALF MAYBE 2 IT DEPENDS ON TRAFIC AND HOW MANY STOPS U WANT TO MAKE ON YOUR TRIP ... IF I CAN HELP U WITH ANYTHING ELSE JUST ASK
The other answer was 2 hours ? It is maybe a mistake.
If you like to go from Porumbacu to Sambata, you have to think about at least 4 days. And don't do it in winter.
From Sambata de Sus you can arrive to Sambata (cabana) in some 2-3 hours but then you have no time to go to the top. Starting next day in the early morning you can arrive to Moldoveanu and after that go to Podragu lake (I have no ideea if there is a refuge or not, now (it was in the past), for the night). Next day you can cross to Balea Lac and after next day with some hard "runing" you can arive back to Porumbacu (Negoiu and Poiana Neamtului are on the way).
But, if weather is bad, you will be stacked in the mountains for days long.
u need at least 4-5 days.have a good trip
If you mean ride...like ride by car... than is a couple of hours, maybe less. You can easy reach Sambata de Sus by car... and than make some mountain trips on marked trails to Balea Lake or anywhere around... beautiful views, snow even is summer time and you dont have to travel by foot in the mountains more than you can actually enjoy yourself and the surroundings... Good luck and have fun!
Sorry, I mean to walk from Porumbacu - Negoiu - Moldoveanu - Cabana Sambata. Thanks.
I mean to walk through Fagaras Mountains, not to drive a car on the road.
I want to go by byke or better to walk from Porumbacu - Negoiu - Moldoveanu - Cabana Sambata. Thanks.
i think u need at least 2 days... to ride to make as many stops u like and to enjoy the trip... to meet people...
I can ensure you, in case you would like to travel From Prombacu to reach the highest peaks in the Fagaras Mountains you need at least 3-4 days. But it depends on your phisycal condition.
I did this trekking in 1999 at the solar eclipse time and it was fantastic.
If you choose the way from Negoiu to Moldoveanu you can reach the Negoiu Cottage under the Negoiu peak, the Caltun Refuge under the Caltun peak, the Balea Motel (refuge) near the Balea Lake and the Podragu Cottage under the Podragu Peak. From the Podragu peak you will have one more day the climb the Moldoveanu peak and to come back to the Podragu Peak. After it you still will need a half day to come down to the railway station.
Good luck.
But you can have more informations from the alpin portal.
