  • Pictured from a helicopter, Piatra Craiului looks like a giant dinosaur skeleton surrounded by forest. The massive white limestone ridge crosses the mountain from North to South. The highest Peak (La....  more »
  • Few notes: 1. You won't meet any bears. You won't even see any. Nor lynx. What's more stressful is when you meet shepherd dog blocking your way. They don't act like normal dogs so it's hard to see...  more »

  • România has got many wonderful places, and Piatra Craiului Mountain is just one of them. The view over the valleys is all worth the climb 🥰
  • The Piatra Craiului National Park, with all it's wonders is one of the most beautiful place in Romania. The sharp peaks attracts the travelers all year round. Some of the path are quite technical and requires a little bit of climbing knowledge. These mountains have a special place in my mind.
  • Beautifull!
  • A really magic place! I recommend.
  • Stunning national park. We went during low season at the end of October 2016 and stopped at the NP visitor center for some additional recommendations after our original plans to do a day hike to La Om. We were cautioned to do a shorter version to the Ascutit shelter (and even then the guides were wary of our time constraints) because of the snow. We consider ourselves to be in fairly good shape, and the round trip hike from the bottom to Ascutit took about 10.5 hours with snack breaks. I will definitely say this hike is not for the faint of heart. There was a considerable amount of snow, very poor visibility at times, and strong gusting winds at the ridge. For anyone with a severe fear of heights, I would think twice. There was one portion where you have to scale a walk with only a metal wire, and I considered on numerous occasions just turning around. We were the only hikers out that day, likely due to the weather, but what you are rewarded with is a gorgeous forest, views when the clouds clear, and a national park all to yourself. A huge highlight of our trip and highly recommended for any adventurous travelers out there! Just plan accordingly with the weather. *Last bit of advice: don't stray from the posted path, especially in the open field, as it can easily direct you into the path of very aggressive sheep dogs. From very unfortunate personal experience that resulted in a thankfully superficial dog bite because I was wearing multiple pants layers, these are HIGHLY aggressive animals and will attack you.
