Caving in Retezatul Mic

In the Retezat Mountains caves are located in the South-Eastern part of the mountain range, in the Retezatul Mic, which is formed in limestone. The majority of the caves are situated at high altitude. During a 5-day caving camp we have visited a few pits and caves from Scocului Mare Gorges and Scorotei Gorges. Pit no. 5 from Scocul Mare Gorges,

Cave no. 4 from Scorota Gorges and Zeicului Cave.
