legenda-piatra-ciobanuluiIf you climb the mountain Ceahlau on the route bookmarked with red cross, that starts in the Durau resort – Duruitoarea Waterfall and goes up to the Cabin Dochia you’ll see, after the waterfall a plane from where you can see Toaca Peak and “Piatra Ciobanului” Stone (translated would be Sheperd’s Stone).

The route that goes from the Duruitoarea Waterfall to the Shepherd’s Stone starts from the left of the waterfall and goes up in an abrupt slope that was arranged by the park’s authorities with wooden stairs and rails. This route is closed during the winter. From here you reach Scaius Plane, from where the trail goes up near “Piatra Ciobanului” Stone. The route becomes abrupt. Once you’ll pass by Polita Arinisului you’ll reach a belvedere point from where you can see in all its splendor Toaca Peak and “Piatra Ciobanului” Stone.

Very few tourists know the legend of this stone that talks about the beauty of these places and a kind of people famous for their bravery and their herds of ox. Among these people there was a young shepherd that was a great story teller and that gathered all the animals around him to hear his stories. When he died to honor him the people named the rock where he used to go with his sheep the “Piatra Ciobanului” Stone. Read about other legends of stones from Ceahlau Massif.
