All about the trip
On this tour, we will visit one of the most notorious tourist attractions on the Arieş Valley, the Huda lui Papară cave. With its 40 meters-tall entrance portal, and the cave’s largest chamber called the Chamber of Wonders (Sala Minunilor) which is 50 meters tall and 80 meters wide the cave seems gigantic. Huda lui Papară hosts the largest bat colony in Romania (over 84 000 bats of 9 different species). The cave is crossed by an underground river, 2 kilometers long. It is also the longest cave in the Trascău Mountains. The Vânătările Ponorului waterfall, also a beautiful site, is where the river enters the cave.
This nature reserve of great importance, on the upper valley of the river Aries, surrounded by ancient forests and mountains, is the doorstep to the Ţara Moţilor (the Land of the Motz), a beautiful rustic region and an important mining region, rich in gold, silver and uranium.
Here lies the largest gold deposit on the continent, although these resources were exploited for more than two millennia (since Dacian reign), and have attracted the Roman Empire’s invasion.
This is an easy 3 – 3,5 h hiking, 300 m level difference ascending and 300 m descending.
