It consists of a labyrinth network of galleries without important unevenesses and generally easily accessible, which amounts to 1500m in length. The wide arch opening with a height of 6m and a width of 10m, continues with a large and rectilinear gallery, in which stalagmite formations occur and finish in the Great Hall, after bypassing a thick limestone pillar.

From here, Valului gallery and Gurului gallery open to the right, richly concretionated, ending in the Wonder Room. To the left one can enter through the low arch Santurilor Gallery to get in a combination of large rooms, also offering more concrete.
