The way towards the Tăuz emergence starts from the Filea mill, descends to the stramlet and goes under the arduous rock wall. After ten minutes we get to another streamlet, on which we go further upwards until we reach a limestone wall. At the foot of it we can find the Tăuz emergence, so the Gârdișoara' s springlet. It is like a siphon, with the depth of 87 m, the deepest one in the country that was explored.

This is a cave under earth, which contains 25.000 l water. It is wonderful. Tourists are attracted to its outlook, whereas potholing is attracted by its depth. Everyone intends to explore the cave channel between the Coiba Mare and the streamlet, which is 2, 5 km. The actual explored length is 375 m. It is stated that the siphon is 30 m downwards. To conquer it is a highly risky project, in spite of the fact many have tried from all over Europe.
