Information about the Piatra Craiului Mountains:
Piatra Craiului Mountains are a mountain range in the Southern
Carpathians in Romania. In Romanian "Piatra Craiului" means "Rock of the
The Piatra Craiului mountains form a narrow and saw-like
ridge, which is about 25 km long. The highest elevation in the massif is
the "Vârful La Om" with 2238 m.
The ridge is regarded as one of the
most beautiful sights in the Carpathians. The two-day north–south ridge
trail is both challenging and rewarding. Starting at either Plaiul Foii
in the north-west or Curmătura in the north-east, walkers climb up to
the ridge before following a somewhat precarious path along the narrow
spine. The descent at the southern end leads into a karst landscape of
deep gorges and pitted slopes where water penetrating the rock has
carved a series of caves.
