Mălăiești Cottage in Mălăiești Valley – The valley of stars – 1 Day Hiking Tour from Brasov

1 Day


The Mălăiești Cottage or Cabin is situated in the Bucegi Natural Park, which has become a protected natural area back in 2000. It’s a mountainous area with lots of caves, pits, ridges, canyons, forests, valleys and even waterfalls. Here, nature has been more than generous with hay meadows, limestone rocky slopes and alpine rivers. This area is a delight for tourists all over the world, and it’s one that people hardly forget. It’s also called “Romania’s Touristic Cradle”, with over 15 peaks, rising high and proudly gazing over the horizon.

Mălăiești Cabin in the valley of stars

The Mălăiești cabin is one of the most well-known and loved mountain cottages in the Bucegi Natural Park. It is situated in the Mălăiești Valley, which some locals call “The Valley of Stars”. This is because the night sky in the summertime is extremely clear and many stars can be observed.
