Geocache Description:

At 10 Km from Oradea, near Betfia Aven (Vertical Cave). You can drive 50 meters to the cave.

The most attractive objective in the area is Betfia Vertical Cave (N 46° 58.895' E 022° 01.166') elevation 291 m, called by cavers an "Aven". The cave begins with a pitch of 54 meters, leading in a large hall 35x18x20 m, which presents a haotic relief of massive bloks or rock. Two other galeries descend from this hall, each one having other small halls, where are living a few protected species of bats. The total deep of the cave is 86 m.

!!! Due to the vertical geneze of the cave, visiting the cave requires special skills, training and equipment. Don't get to close to the edge of the entrance. !!!

The cache is (22x12x7) cm, @150 m from Betfia Aven.
