Marked with a red triangle, the route is 7 kilometers long and can be covered in less than four hours.
Like most of the routes in the gorge, it starts next to the old “Peştera” chalet, more and more degraded with each passing year. Here tourists cannot miss the waterfall and the cave from Vadu Crişului. The latter was discovered by Czaran Gyula, also nicknamed “the father of Bihor tourism”, at the beginning of the 20th century. The cave is famous due to its numerous formations that have received names that provoke the imagination of tourists: the Globe, the Tomb of Mahommed, the Beard of the Prophet, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, etc. It is also worth seeing the underground lake on which, a century ago, the protipendada of these places rode by boat, in the light of the torches.
