    Peculiar landscape
    This Peat-Bog was formed on top of a former crater lake, offering an almost outlandish landscape, and harboring a handful of very interesting plants. Access is covered by the parking fee at the entrance and includes a guided tour, which starts every hour at .15 min. Once here, one should also visit its smaller twin, the neighboring St.-Ana crater lake.

    A special location
    Like I said in title this place it is a special one, a natural rezervation with a protected species of flora and fauna. He had a very good guide who gave us a lot of explanations and waited our questions. Beautiful natural peat bog with a great history. if you come to see the St. Anna Lake, worth to see it also the Mohos Peat Bog!!!

    Good Nature Walk
    First you must go with a group, you just can't go tour by yourself. The guide gave us a good tour in English and told us about the plants and history of the bog. You walk across wooden steps so be prepared if some adventure. It was interesting and quite informative.

The peat-bog can be visited only with a guide. The tour starts and 10, I think, and continue from 2 hours in 2 hours until 18.00. The visit is short, only 45 minutes, but you have the chance to see carnivore plants and a volcanic landscape.
Overall, it's one of the beautiful places I have visited in Romania.

This is quite an interesting place. The entrance is free. There is a tour guide every hour. He is super friendly and funny. You can see he has lots of knowledge regarding this place. The tour lasts around 40-45min. I totally recommend.

A brilliant place for people of all ages.
Great views, great story, jokes and outstandingly impressive habitat. From hallucinogenic plants, insectivores to snakes... Well, could it get any better?

This is place is a nature reserved and is treated like one. You shouldn't mess with plants because you might get poisoned or hallucinations or diareea, you shouldn't mess with reptiles because you might get a nasty bite and you shouldn't mess with bears because of all the logical reasons. Also, because here everything is protected by law, except you.
The good side is there's a guide who will take you through the place, tell you all about the beauties, the dangers and the legends of that place (they swore they had elephants there, just ask them where they are). The guide will tell you what to touch and what not, had dealt with very large groups of people and had three bear encounters there. He will tell you what to do when you meet a bear and will help you if you get stung by a wasp.
There were no bear encounters when I went and I felt a bit sad because of that...

The peat-bog is in the center of a volcanic crater that had a lake in it which was covered when the adjacent crater erupted. Below the tundra-like flora there is a 20m deep lake. This place is not only unique in the region but in Europe.

Visits are possible several times each day and a guided tour lasts an hour. Absolutely worth a visit!

This place is really special, entering the park feeling like you were transposed into another world, not a diverse world, but a special one. The guide is the one that makes the transition into this world with the multitude of interesting stories. In this place you can find a insectivore plant species and the feeling that you get when you try to put your foot on the grassy carpet is very interesting. Near this nature reserve is St. Ana Lake and Lake Ciucas, the latter being located in Baile Tusnad. Near the entry is a parking, a restaurant with a toilet, but do not expect great conditions. I was very impressed!

The first tours of the Bog start at 10 a.m., from the ticket office at the main car park. They run at regular intervals. There are a couple of souvenir shops here and places to eat. The Bog is inside the caldera of an active volcano- but it hasn’t ‘blown’ for a long, safe period.

The guide on my tour (which only costs a few lei), a friendly medical student doing a summer holiday job, was most informative and gave a knowledgeable account of the area and its ecology in both good English and Hungarian.

There are stretches of boardwalk in this restricted area and a few small ponds, with rare vegetation and dwarf trees.

We were regaled with tales of the Bulgarian secret service and berries which grow here and which went into the tip of that umbrella used in an assassination in London !

It is definitely a must; but visitors will find their tour enhanced (as mine was) if there are not many people on it- as the peace and solitude will inevitably be destroyed with greater numbers.
