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

It's one of those places, where nature leaves you speechless, seems like you are on a different planet. Worth to visit them.

Naturally, this in one of the greatest landscape in Romania, and maybe in all Europe. They are small volcanoes who spit from time to time mud, and all the area is full of mud ( dry or liquid ). And both areas ( Paclele Mici and Paclele Mari, that means Small Mist and Big Mist ) have nice vegetation surroundings.... More

Beautiful and really unique landscape, a must do in Romania. It's easy to reach by car and there is also a restaurant/pension at Paclele Mari, not awesome facilities but really nice staff and acceptable food. Personally I liked more the ones at Paclele Mici ones. Looking forward for an English version of the site and more varied transportation facilities :D.

It is an interesting place to visit, not too far from Bucharest, it can be a one day trip. There are 2 sites, very close one from another. The "volcanoes" are actually small craters bubbling mud and gas.

Interresting. The roads towards there are pretty poor especially to Paclele Mici which has no tarmac.

We decided to make a one day bike trip around Buzau and our main objective was to see those muddy little spitters. On our track we past through forests and climbed hills, but once we arrived there, the view totally changed. The cracked and dry mud, the grey field led the impression of alien land. The little spitters were fun... More

It is a hard to describe in words. Are actually mud volcanoes, which are in constant eruption, some of higher intensity, others lower. There is something spectacular about this place. Even if you are not in Buzau area (area with an excellent wine), it deserves to make a detour to visit this wonder of the world.

Beautiful place with active mud volcanoes. It is definitively worth visit . Entrance is 2 lei adult, 1 lei kid. There are in fact 2 places of mud volcanoes cca 4 km from each other.
