I Bucegi Mountains dominate the spectacular and enchanting stretch of the Prahova valley, by far one of the most beautiful of the Carpathians. However, if someone tried to write the term Bucegi on a search engine, the result would be roughly this: The sphinx and the mystery of humanity (alien?); Romania, the enigma of an incredible structure in the Bucegi Mountains; Tunnels and alien bases on the Bucegi Mountains; Alien bases inside the Bucegi Mountains ....
The curve of the Carpaţi Mountains, which takes its name Bucegi, has for centuries been surrounded by an aura of esotericism, enhanced by the presence of some singular attractions of geological origin, such as the Sphinx and Babel, nicknamed "The Elderly"
We certainly do not want, here, to deepen mystical-esoteric arguments that are beyond our interests; nor, let alone, we want to review the different episodes that have occurred over the years, with more or less plausible evidence (sifting, we read about a farmer who found the remains of giant bones under an apple or even strange seismic phenomena).
Why talk about it, then? Simply because it is a truly evocative and extremely beautiful place to see. Add to this the presence of a rocky structure sculpted by the wind, at 2200 meters of altitude, the Sphinx, in fact. View and breathtaking view. There is also a refreshment point where you can eventually stop.
That you are directed to Brasov, Sinaia o Bucharest, considering the possibility of a visit to the area: you will not be disappointed by the Sphinx and Babel.
