The legend of Miron’s Haystacks in Ceahlău Massif

3 February 2023 No Comment

Following the hiking trail from Izvorul Muntelui to Poiana Maicilor (Nuns’ Glade), right before reaching Dochia Chalet, tourists pass by two impressive rock formations called „Clăile lui Miron” (Miron’s Haystacks).

The legend speaks of an old shepherd from Secu / Izvorul Alb, who came here a long time ago, to find pastures for his flock. Reaching high to the sky and full of greenery, these massif rocks exerted a particular fascination on the shepherd, whose name was Miron. Miron used to stop by these rocks, especially on nights of the full moon. The shepherd was gifted with playing the flute, and his songs were mesmerizing to the beasts in the forest, the wind, the rocks, the hills, and the mountain streams. In time, a strong connection began to grow between the shepherd and this place, whereby he died and is laid to rest. That’s why these rocks remained known by the locals as Miron’s Haystacks, where the shepherd loved to play his flute.
