Route description - Translated with Yandex Tanslate

Valley Horoaba has its origin under the Vf. Tapului (The mountain pass), from where it descends to the south, between the huge bridges of the mountains Old and Strungile Large. In the lower area, the valley penetrates into a deep canyon, passing over a series of jumpers, steps and troughs eroded by water and from heights ranging between 5 and 15 m.

This portion is known as the Canyon Trail (in the old toponymy, Corridor Trail). According to the same toponimii, the name of the Horoaba is assigned to the portion comprised between the confluence of this valley with V. lalomi?ei and V. Le?ni?ei, where the gate, up to the springs, the name of V. Old. At the lower end of the corridor, waters Trail, which hitherto have being unsuspected on under a bed of limestone, come back to the surface (the Spring of the Bachelor, or the name of the recent karst spring Trail, place is indicated by a plank of wood), passing over a series of small jumpers and blocks. The right wall (as we descend) is the drilling of a tunnel. On the opposite shore, two stone arches seem to be the remains of a cave collapsed under the action of continuous and relentless water. At a short distance downstream, the thread Trail is forming a waterfall of over 10 m, the Waterfall's Burlacu, after which her waters, zorind under the walls of the Old woman, are lost in the thickets of a forest of spruce, and a few hundred meters below the confluence with the V. lalomi?ei, at Padina.

All saritorile heavy are equipped with stairs (wood or metal).
