Tomașca ponors

Ponor glade Cetățile Ponorului Cheile Galbenei Galbina emergence Evantai waterfall

The waters of the Padis karst plateau are gathered by the surface and underground waters, drain along the bed. During this time, the surface waters reach the altitude of 1600m to 1280m and are definitively lost to the Ponoarele Tomașca. After a 2200m trail they reach Poiana Ponor where the strong stream of water emerges, forming the Poiana Ponor emergence. In the same glade, the water is lost again through sinkholes of glade. After 1087 m of underground trail it rises to Cetățile Ponorului, and falls underground through the big port of Ponor Fortress. In the galleries of the cave, the waters are lost through sorbs, and after a course of 1812m, they appear in the Galbena emergence. Something below and water Galbena is lost and reappears in beautiful Evantai waterfall. From here Galbena has a surface course.
