It is the beginning of the underground tunnel in Galbei gorges, over 100 m long and very difficult to practice. It ends with the exceptionally beautiful and spectacular Evantai waterfall, 7 m high, at the base of which is a lake.
The Galbena gorges were formed due to the heavy flow of water that cut deep into the limestone massif, giving birth to one of the most grandiose gorges in our mountains.
The hundreds of meters high, natural arches, caves with open mouths in the middle of the walls, and the tumultuous course of water with waterfalls, huge marmites, and several underground tunnels along the way give this region a seamless wilderness.

We’re left with the duty to respect these parts at our every step, keep them clean and pristine for generations to come, and for us as well, because in Nature, “the tourist comes to gladden his eyes, the thinker encounters a grand book where every rock is a letter, where every lake is a phrase, where every village is an accent and from whence a smoke of ancient memories emerges”. (Victor Hugo)
