A step away from the commune of Şuncuiuş, in the Frânturii glade, is the entrance to the longest cave in Romania. The Wind Cave has over 47 kilometers of underground galleries, being a real natural labyrinth.

The name of the cave comes from the fact that at the entrance a very strong air current is formed, due to the very long length of the galleries. Depending on the temperature differences between the indoor and outdoor environment, the current can reach a speed of several tens of kilometers per hour.

Galleries that seem endless, high passes, stalactites and stalagmites of various shapes and sizes are the ingredients of memories for a lifetime. The largest stalactite in the cave, “Torpila”, is 4.5 meters high.

Being one of the caves from the adventure caves network of Pădurea Craiului, the Wind cave can be the perfect destination for an adventure, in the depths of the earth.

Attention, the visit is allowed only in the company of accredited speleotourism guides!
