Bucharest – Ulmet (Trovanti) – Berca (Mud Volcanoes) – Bucuresti
This tour is for us to enjoy and admire nature.
After two and a half hours by car, we’ll be at 500 m from Trovanti. From the parking lot, we should climb a little bit the hill. It’s not so easy, but the effort worth it.
The concretions are uniques geological forms ranging in size up to a few meters. They are made from sand, sandstones, and calcium carbonate. The small forms appear on the rocks. This is happening after the rain, so the locals say those stones are growing. That’s why we call them “living stones”. The process of sedimentation started 6 million years ago. Every 1200 years the trovanti grow 4-5 cm.
The shapes of trovanti are also strange. The locals gave names like the microphone, the binocular, the UFO, the slide, the whale, the dolphin, the columns.
After all of these, we’ll see and admire the mud volcanoes. That’s means after one hour by car. One hill covert with mud, dust, and some holes where cold mud is bubbling. Seams that the dragon from the underground is still breathing.
