Focul Viu Cave

judetul Bihor, Crisana

Description

"Ghetarul de la Focul Viu" Cave is one of the caves situated in Bihor Mountains. The cave is disposed on Galbena Valley, near Piatra Galbenii Peak and Cuculeul de Fier Peak at an altitude of 1165 meters.

The access inside is made by a wooden staircase. The cave is composed of two rooms. The Great Hall, with a height of 46 meters and a length of 68 meters, houses an impressive ice cave (25,000 m3). The cave's glacier is the third biggest, after the one of Scarisoara and Bortig. The Great Hall's ceiling is partially open with a large window, through which, over time, have fallen trunks of trees, which were trapped in the glacier's mass.

In the opposite side to the entrance in the Great Hall there are several groups of stalagmite which cause flash reflections, thus the name of the cave: Focul Viu (the Alive Fire). The open window in the ceiling enhance the accumulation of cold air and lack of ventilation systems keep the cold air inside the cavity, thus allowing the existence of the cave's glacier during the year. Behind the stalagmites there is a gallery which leads to the Small Hall, which in turn, contains several formations of stalagmites.

The access to the cave is possible by car, on the forest road Balaleasa - Seaca Valley, up to the forest canton from Cetatilor Valley, from where people have to walk (about 1.5 kilometers).
