legenda-claile-lui-mironIf you climb the mountain Ceahlau on the route bookmarked with a red line that starts at the Izvorul Muntelui Chalet – Poiana Maicilor – Claile lui Miron – Ocolasul Mic and goes up to the Dochia Chalet you’ll encounter two rock formations that are known as “Claile lui Miron”. Although it represents a touristic attraction for those that climb the mountain, there are few that know the local legend of these stones.

The legend speaks of an old shepherd who many years back, came here from Secu or Izvorul Alb with his sheep. The name of this shepherd was Miron. He liked these beautiful places and many times, in the nights with full moon, he stood near these rocks singing with his flute.

His songs were so wonderful that all the animals, rocks, hills, rivers and even the wind stood still to listen. In time a strong connection began to grow between the shepherd and this place. Slowly the weeks turned into months and the months turned into years. The shepherd Miron continued to sing for all the living things and all the nature’s elements until he died at the base of these rocks. That is why the rocks are called “Claile lui Miron”: the place where the shepherd liked to sing with his flute. Read about other legends from Ceahlau Massif!
