A very beautiful an wild Cave. The access to the cave is by car from Garda de Sus to the village Casa de Piatra, then it's a short walk of about one hour to the cave. There is a guide in the vilage, and you have to ho onli with the guide. You wil need to have your own flashlights, the cave is not illuminated. It is important to have mountain equipmant, pants, boots etc.
Three Neanderthal feet marks were discovered in this cave, of which one can be seen at the Institute of Speleology EMIL RACOVITA from Cluj-Napoca.
A realy adevnture trip.

This cave is also called The Wonderful Cave, due to its beauty. The access to the cave is by car from Garda de Sus to the village Casa de Piatra, then it's a short walk of about one hour and a half (the last part is uphill). There is a guide at the cave. It is recommended to have your own flashlights, since the cave is not illuminated, and the guide has only a few flashlights. There is a small block of ice close to the entrance of the cave, which also gives the name of glacier to the cave. Three Neanderthal feet marks were discovered in this cave, of which one can be seen at the Institute of Speleology of Cluj-Napoca (two were stolen). The temperature inside the cave is +4 degrees Celsius, so it is recommended to wear a jacket or something warm. I highly recommend visiting this cave!
