Photographer's Note

The Piatra Craiului Mountains are a mountain range in the Southern Carpathians in Romania. In Romanian "Piatra Craiului" means "Rock of the King".

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 whole range is included in the national park Parcul Naţional Piatra Craiului (Piatra Craiului National Park).

In the picture you have a part of "Diana Towers", where you can find an interesting climbing zone.
