Piatra Craiului National Park aims to protect and preserve some types of ecosystems that are representative for the national biogeographic space. These ecosystems contain natural elements of outstanding value from the point of view of the physical geography, flora and fauna, hydrology, geology or palaeontology, offering the possibility of organising trips for research, education, recreation and tourism purposes. Piatra Craiului National Park includes Piatra Craiului Ridge and stretches from Braşov to Argeş counties, covering areas in the following places: Zărneşti, Moieciu, Bran, Rucăr and Dâmbovicioara. The total surface of the park is 14.773 hectares.
Zărneşti Gorge: located on the NE side of the massif, accessible from Zărneşti town on a forest road past the “Gura Râului” chalet. The gorge has a length of approximately 3.5 km and its steep cliffs that guard over the valley have heights of between 100 and 200 m, and thus are very attractive for climbing and for the observation of some rare bird species like the wallcreeper (Tichodroma muraria).
