I have visited the muddy volcanoes with my family, and I am not really sure if this is how the tour should actually be, but we had lots of fun. The volcanoes are not that impressive. These are medium size lifts of mud, they measure a few meters high. And you can climb the so called volcanos really easily and... More

I did enjoy the little mudvolcanoes at Paclele Mici though I have to tell you a small tip: You dont have to leave your car at the parking... More

A really great, interesting landscape. Great for a geology lesson. Apart from the mudvolcanoes themselves, it's interesting to see how over time rainwater erroded the mud deposits forming canyons, riverbays etc. Unfortunately the place lacks tourist information, apart from a panel at the entrance, there's not really much information provided. TIP: the little mudvolcanoes (Paclele Mici) are far more interesting,... More

It's a special place, as natural space. But it is not possible that such a phenomenon is so little revealed by authorities. On site, there is not information panels about the appearance, evolution and phenomenon. Stefan

I visit the place at least one time per year for cycling experiences. Children love the place, you need high effort for keeping them away from playing with the mud. Enjoy!

I first got to Paclele Mari and the sand and the hills gave me the impression that I was on the Moon, just like Neil Armstrong. At Paclele Mici the volcanoes are not so tall, but they are very active and they make bubbles all the time. It is an interesting place to visit, especially for children, who enjoy the... More

I was there in June 2013, the place looks good quite selenar. I was lucky to be there before a loaded coach of teenagers so I had a few minutes of deserted landscape and peace to explore and photograph. It seems like a different planet, as previous reviews say. Also if it is raining they don't allow visitors inside (or... More
