Babele (meaning The old women) is a name for an area on the Bucegi Mountains plateau in Romania, within the Southern Carpathians.
Babele is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country. The name comes from some mushroom shaped rock formations, the result of erosion and varying hardness of the rock layers.
The Bucegi Sphinx is another rock formation in the same area, named for its sphinx-like appearance. My opinion, the Sphinx looks like a skull.
