Romania has so many hidden wonderful places that are little known …even to Romanians. Bigar Waterfall is one of them & is located in Caras-Severin County, which ranks first in a recent chart of unique waterfalls. This hidden gem can be found somewhere on the road between the village of Bozovici and the village of Poneasca, in the Anina mountains.
Caras-Severin, Romania.

Photography Tips

Bigar is one of the few falls that can be photographed well from above as from below. Be extremely careful descending to the creek as the rocks are extremely slippery. I found the best place to descend not at the walking bridge but about 100 feet farther North. Best shooting on a cloudy overcast day. Being deep in the gorge, direct sunlight only lands on parts of the falls and causes exposure issues. When the sun came out, I waited a minute or so for cloud cover and was able to get good even lighting adequate for longer exposures.

Travel Information

Bigar is easy to access as it's located right off the highway. There is parking for only 4 cars at the falls, but we found additional parking about 100 yards farther North.

Well, in fact, the large mushroom-headed sintered block of limestone that created the veil of water like a stretched umbrella has broken off and fallen into the gorge. What remains is a still pretty waterfall, which also forms a bit of a veil, and the gorge into which it falls. Above, a short hiking trail leads through a deciduous forest along the small stream. There are a few small, delicate waterfalls here too. At the top is a karst rock face with a cave. At a railing, a very steep, rocky path leads to the cave. Very brave climbers can enter the cave on a chain.

Unfortunately, this spot no longer exists, the piece of land sticking out, fall into the river below destroying the waterfall.
