Avenul Gemenele

judetul Alba, Transilvania

AddressLoc. Zlatna,

Description

Etymologically speaking, "Avenul Gemenele" comes from the two verticals of access: one of 17 m and the other one of 20 m. The access is made: through the vertical of 20 m which is equipped with a python (you may also use trees) and on the 17 m vertical, the equipment was done with 2 rungs. The two vertical descend in the same room. From here up to the vertical of 17m, the climbing is made on a cone. Until reaching a horizontal gallery, we continue upward. We pass through a corridor rich in remains of animals that have fallen into the hole and reach a room with modest length, from where we find 3 galleries, all descendants.

From the middle gallery we reach a bigger room than the one before. The path continues on the same direction; after we climb a small threshold we arrive in a very rich area  with stalagmites, stalactites, columns, cluster. Pay attention to the the entrances that cover the entire width of the gallery.

And all these are just a preamble to the Great Hall, which is open downwards in this gallery. The Grand Gur is situated at the entry in its left. The water that is found here is very clean, so pure it often gives the impression of an empty mouth. 

The room continues with a narrow and muddy gallery that will begin to climb. It leads to the entrance hole. A large room is found in the left of the entrance. This room continues with a brief gallery of 10 m, but whose speleothems exceed any superlative: clusters, curtains etc. The gallery ends abruptly, being closed by a leak calcite. It was found and explored by Viorel Ludusan.
