  • Because I am geoscientist and we had projects there I know quite well the area. It is spectacular for any visitor, with its lunar landscapes, but is even more interesting for geologists and geophysicists as I am. We can see there a complex of volcano edifices build up by the deep mud and rock debris brought up by the high pressure deep fluids (as deep as 3000 m; we have this clue of the provenance depth because the debris is made from rocks laying at that depth in this area). The overpressure able to bring material from such depth has as transporting agent a mix of fluids and is due to the hydrocarbon accumulations in the area (it is well known in the area there are oil & gas reserves), mainly methane and carbon dioxide, accompanied by water (in some areas salt water, as is the case more to the south at Fierbatori – “Boiling” area).
  • Awesome natural attraction in romania. Do not miss! No need to pay for parking anywhere.
  • Nice place to go with the kids. The area is remote and there is not a lot to do around the site
  • Unique landscape and special place. Visiting is a must!
  • The road to "moon land" it's bad, bad and very bad, but it worth every km.
