The Haghimas Mountains are located in the Transylvanian-Moldavian group of the Romanian Carpathians. The geomorphological structure is formed over the crystalline rocks upon which mainly sedimentary limestones, conglomerates and dolomites were deposited. The suspended relief of the Haghimas trough shows a well-developed endokarst geosystem to a lower extent due to recent hydrographic conditions and sediment clogging of waterproof materials. Because of the strong tectonization of the northeastern edge of the trough we can study important caves and potholes in the geographic area of the Haghimas as well as gorges that were formed in a tectonic, erosive, and corrosive way together with the interaction of these phenomena. [1,3] Extreme forms of tourism that can be practised here are caving (exploratory research), canyoning and climbing. Our study focuses on the following geomorphic karsts: Sec Stream, the Great Gorges (Bicaz Gorge) Bicajel Gorges with its affluent The Alb Stream, Lapos Gorge, Sugau Gorge, Licas pothole, Pistabacii pothole, Munticelu Cave, and Gura Bardosului Cave. Our study aims to monitor routes and to map the main tourist resources in the studied category.

Keywords: limestone potholes, canyoning, caving, climbing, geotourism
