1. Tăul fără fund, Densuş village, Peşteana village
The destination is in Densuş commune, Peşteana village. Access is from DN68 between Haţeg and Sarmizegetusa turn westwards following the signs to Peşteana (2km). In the village, next to the Reformed Church, you can see the tourists' big panel. From there, over the bridge begins the route to You.
The trail is marked from the village to the reservation, to interpret with panels the five interesting points on the route and the arrangement of your entrance.

What do we see on the way?
Tăul Fără Fund or Mlaștina de la Peșteana is an important botanical reservation for two reasons: first here is Drosera Rotundifolia, a carnivorous plant left over during the glaciation. Secondly, Tăul is a special place in local folklore - it is said that Tăul does not have a bottom and communicates underground with the Black Sea, and that here are the forces of evil that sometimes attract people or animals that they draw in the water.
The road of approx. 2 km from Peşteana to Tăul Fără Fund is superb. Flower puddles, rare butterflies and landscapes of Hateg Country are unique. Throughout the route you will have the opportunity to eat raspberries and strawberries.
You will not find a marsh in the true sense of the word, deep and dangerous, but do not venture until you get into the mud to the ankles.
Carnivorous plants live there are not dangerous to humans, but they are a unique attraction. Their dimensions are a few tens of centimeters, they are a thick, sticky cloth that catches little creatures.

According to the videotourism site, Mlaștina de la Peșteana (Densuş County, Haţeg Land), a 4-hectare protected area of the 4th category, located on the territory of the Peşteana village, represents a subrecognitive clogging by spagmatizing a preistocene lake. It is one of the most southern oligotrophic marshes in our country, in which the populations of Drosera rotundifolia (the dew of the sky), a true glacier relic, stand out. This swamp is also called by the locals "Bottomless Lake" that popular legends say is even a bottomless lake, and in the past when the animals came to drink here they were simply swallowed.

According to the villagers of the Peşteana, Tăul fără Fund is a swamp that communicates deeply with the ocean and where the cattle attracted by the devil remain stiff.

One of the most popular tourist reviews portals gives us some impressions about this place, and a movie.
