Vadul Crisului Cave

judetul Bihor, Crisana

AddressLoc. Suncuius,


The Cave from Vadu Crisului is an old and well known touristic site which confesses its living by the thick waters which, after they have crossed the galleries, fall into Crisul Repede river into a beautiful waterfall, located in the heart of this gorge that the Transylvanian river realizes between Suncuius and Vadu Crisului. These two localities make up, in fact, the termini points of the access by cars: Vadu Crisului village is connected with DN 1 by an asphalt derivative of 3 km.

One can easily reach the cave by train, because it is only 300 m from the railway station Pestera, the railway line Cluj-Napoca - Oradea. Next to the cave is situated Vadu Crisului Hut, which has about 80 permanent seats and buffet, and the few clearings on the banks of modest Crisului offer camping. The entrance to cave is at an altitude of 305 m, on the same terrace in a rock on the left bank of the river Cris.

The Cave from Vadu Crisului
presents the available downstream of a 4.5 km long underground drainage of air that originated on karst plateau from Zece Hotare where Valley Pestireului is trapped underground by Batranului Cave. The gallery is narrow, but sometimes with the canopy above 20 m.

In the 80 meters that follow after it goes down again in the underground course, the deep water occupies the entire width of its gallery, justifying the name of Hell (Iad) that the first explorers gave to this portion of the cave, after they faced serious difficulties with the scroll. Subsequently, the space opens into the hall, then the underground scene is a little changed until the right of the second siphon.

This second aerated water, situated 750 m from the entrance, is penetrable in dry periods, allowing access into the last portion of the cave. The terminus is the third aerated water, this time permanently closed. The gallery's lenght from the entry to this point it is 1000 m.
