The Sphinx, Romania

united_kingdomThe Sphinx is a natural rock formation at 2216 meters of altitude in the Bucegi Mountains in Romania. It’s 8 meters high and from a certain angle, the Sphinx resembles a human head, shape which was created by wind erosion in time. It can be accessed in 15 minutes by cable car from Busteni, or by foot for the hike lovers.

romania_flagSfinxul din Muntii Bucegi, aflat la o altitudine de 2216 meters, este un bloc mare de piatra ce seamana din profil cu un chip de om, inaltimea sa fiind de 8 metri. Aceasta forma a fost data de eroziunea vantului in timp si este o importanta atractie turistica in Romania. Pentru a ajunge la Sfinx poti lua telecabina Busteni-Babele care te duce pe platoul Bucegi in aproximativ 15 minute.

united_kingdomOn the mountain peak of Bucegi Mountains, around the Sphinx, there were flocks of sheep eating grass, away from the noise and pollution of the big cities.

Babele (The Old Ladies)

united_kingdom10 minutes from the Sphinx we find the famous Babele (The Old Ladies) – big rocks shaped by wind and looking like mushrooms.

romania_flagLa 10 minute de Sfinx, pe platoul Bucegi, se afla si celebrele “Babele” – formatiuni stancoase formate prin eroziune eoliana. In ziua de azi sunt inconjurate de un gard, pentru a preveni catararea 😀
