Urlatoarea Waterfall from the Bucegi Mountains is one of the most spectacular in Romania, in terms of both flow and height (15 m). It is formed by Urlatoarea stream, at an elevation of 1,100 m, near the tourist trail that connects Busteni to Bucegi Plateau on Jepi Valley. It can also be reached from Poiana Tapului (trail 4 – blue dot). Besides the main waterfall (15 meters), there are other smaller waterfalls a few tens of meters above, on the two streams, Urlatoarea Mare and Comorilor.
The trail from Busteni (885 m) to Urlatoarea Waterfall (1,055 m) marked with a red dot is accessible throughout the year and takes about 1h and 15min. There is a 200m section that can be slippery in case of rain or mud, and there are signs indicating that the area is frequented by bears. The name of the waterfall comes from the loud noise of the falling water. The water from the waterfall is safe to drink.
The Legend of Urlatoarea Waterfall says that there once was a beautiful maiden, shepherdess, with whom two brothers fell in love. The two young shepherds did not know one about the other's feelings. They began to follow her step by step, until a dark day when they tried to catch her. The frightened girl pulled out a scream of despair and threw herself from the rocks. The girl turned into a waterfall and the two brothers, horrified by what happened were stunned and locked in stone above her.
The tourists who arrive here can choose a longer route, as the waterfall is near the route connecting Busteni resort town and Poiana Tapului to the Jepi Valley and Bucegi Plateau.
