It is a walk in the upper part of the Bucegi Mountains. We arrived from the cable car in Busteni to the top of the Telecabina Babele. We are going to see a series of stones eroded by the force of the wind. Each one with a very peculiar shape. The one that most impacts is the one that looks like a sphinx, that's why the name that this area receives.

We left from the cable car of Babele, on the back we see a path marked by the passage of thousands of people, who visit this place throughout the year. Just before arriving is the Cabana de Babele.

Once past, we began to see huge stones scattered around the area, each with its peculiar shape.

At the end of the walk is the Sphinx, where everyone wants to take a nice picture. It is forbidden to climb the monument. From there we have beautiful views of the Pestera valley. This year I could not go, I hope to go to the next one.

We will return by the same way. I wish you enjoy this little walk of such beauty.
