     The Huda lui Papara cave is the longest one from the Trascau Mountains and the 31st among the other caves in Romania.

     It can be reached by taking the national road DN 75 from Cāmpeni or Turda to Salciua de Jos village and then the county road to Sub Piatra village (4 km)

 
       
 

     The Albamont Tourist Club from Alba Iulia recently made a 250 m wooden path inside the cave, at a medium height of 20 m above the stream, in order to promote a controlled visit of the cave and to protect it.

  The geological reservation consists of a huge steepness cut in limestone, the usual white color of the rocks being changed to violet-blue by the waters that flow down inside the mountain.

 
       
 

     The steepness can be reached by taking the county road DJ 107 I Aiud - Ponor - Mogos (through the villages of Rīmet, Valea Poienii and Ponor) or the national road (DN 75) Turda to from Salciua de Jos on the Aries valley to the Sub Piatra and Valea Poeinii villages.

 
       
 

     The funnel shaped steepness is 80 m deep. There are three streams meeting in the depth of the Dīlbina cave and then crossing the massif through Huda lui Papara cave. The Albamont Tourist Club from Alba Iulia built a belvedere terrace in 2004, so the tourists may enjoy the spectacular view of the waterfall from the opposite stone wall.
