IZBUCUL BIGAR is a powerful spring ( hence the term izbuc ) powered by a groundwater course which crosses the cave with the same name from the Anina Mountains.
After roughly 200 meters the water of the spring (rich in limestone) flows into the Miniș River from a rocky threshold, forming a cascade of limestone calcareous tufa, called BIGAR WATERFALL.
The World Geography site putted together in 2013 a list of the most impressive waterfalls in the world. On the first place is Bigar Waterfall from Caraș-Severin.
Previous, in September 2010, an international travel guide, National Geographic Traveler - Romania, was the first to present this cascade in the specialized tourist press.
And now have a look at some photos of the same waterfall taken during the winter... 😍😍
