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

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.
