Sylvain – Atlantean Hall of Records Discovered – Bucegi Sphinx Pyramids – 9-26-14

Bucegi mountains , also in Romania, a the very eastern end of South Carpathians. The are very popular and overcrowded in several places, but rich in wonders. One of them is the unusual rock that builds a part of them, a conglomerate made of large boulders rather than pebbles. Another wonder are the Babele rocks sculpted by wind in sandstone. The highest peak of Bucegi, Omul (2507 meters) is crowned by a sandstone spire that gave it the name (“Omul” means “The Man”). The hut, situated on the top plateau, has no access to water; water must be carried from a few hundred meters away. But it offers marvellous views at all times of the day and night, like the one here , toward the Bucura peak (2503 meters) and Ialomita valley. In addition to such gentle landscapes, Bucegi have something also for rock hikers, like the Hornulire Malaestilor and the Bucsoiu valley, and even for extreme climbers, like the Caraiman east face and east buttress.
