Geocache Description:

Reteaua Coiba Mica - Coiba Mare este situata în versantul drept al Vaii Gârdisoara, la 600 m în amonte de catunul Casa de Piatra la altitudinea 1020 m. Constituind punctul de la care începe drenajul subteran al Vaii Gârdisoara, Coiba Mica are o intrare de numai 3 m înaltime dar de 20 m latime, în care stau îngramadite numeroase trunchiuri de copaci. Dupa un parcurs de 25 m, apa cade într-o cascada de 12 m, dincolo de care formeaza doua lacuri, lungi de 9-10 m, traverseaza Sala Mare (28 m lungime, 21 m latime maxima si 12 m înaltime) si Sala Blocurilor (18 x 13 x 15 m) si sfârseste prin a se pierde, prin sifonul care desparte cele doua Coibe pe o lungime de 60 m. Dezvoltarea totala a pesterii este de 270 m. Resurgenta întregului drenaj subteran este reprezentata de Izbucul Tauz, situat la o distanta aeriana de 2.600 m si la diferenta de nivel de 170 m. (sursa:

Coiba Mica - Coiba Mare network is located in the right side of Gârdisoara Valley, 600 m upstream of the Casa de Piatra village at 1020 m altitude. As the starting point of the underground drainage Gârdisoara Valley, Coiba Mica has an inflow of only 3 m high by 20 m wide and where many tree trunks are piled. After a journey of 25 m, the water falls into a waterfall of 12 m, beyond which are formed two lakes of 9-10 m long. Then the water is crossing the Great Hall (28 m length, maximum width 21 m and 12 m height) and Hall of Blocks (18 x 13 x 15 m) and ends up losing itself through the siphon that separates the two Coiba Caves. The total development of the cave is 270 meters. The underground drainage of the whole cave is revived at Izbucul Tauz located at a distance of 2,600 m and at level difference of 170 m.
