The legend, written on an informative panel of the Bucegi Natural Park, tells of the love of two shepherd brothers for a beautiful shepherd, who kept his sheep through these mountains in ancient times. One dark day, without knowing each other's love, the brothers stretched their arms toward the shepherd. She, frightened, throws herself off the rocks, turning into a waterfall, symbolizing her lost youth. The two brothers, terrified, are transformed into two rocks, which now guard the waterfall.
