Creasta Cocosului Geological Reserve

judetul Maramures, Maramures


The Geological Reserve "Creasta Cocosului" is a valuable geological monument, both from its unique aspect and from its volcanogenic processes that highlight it. Creasta Cocosului Reserve is part of an extensive volcanic structure, known by the name of Gutai Massife. This belongs to the northern frame of the southern slope of Gutai Mountains and has a long area of plats of 4.5 km and average width of 1.4 km, oriented on the NW-SE direction, parallel to the border of Maramures Depression. In terms of morphology, this structure is individualized within a plateau area, bordered by the peaks Secatura (1390.4 m), Creasta Cocosului (1394.7 m) and Gutaiul Doamnei (1426.2 m), which continues to the SE with a narrow ridge by Gutai peak (1443.0 m) and Apostolii (1397.7 m).

The Geological Reserve "Creasta Cocosului" is a definite proof of the processes taking place at the end of the volcanism of Gutai Mountains, that consists of the youngest rocks of this mountainous area (about 9.0 Ma).

The defining aspect embattled values and justifies the definition of geological monuments as protected area. The landscape given by Creasta Cocosului with its dramatic slopes, from Maramures depression with small lakes in Taul Chendroaiei, the potential traces of the last glaciation, the hills of depression and, last but not least, the range tops of southern and northern slopes of Gutail can not be ignored. Viewed as a component of the entity represented by Massif Gutai, Creasta Cocosului and the vertical column from Secatura justify why this is a protected area.
