The Peșteana Marsh or Bottomless Lake is an interesting tourist attraction in Hunedoara County, recommended especially for admiring the Round-leaved sundew carnivorous plant.
Away from the more famous tourist attractions such as the church of Densuș or the historical site of Ulpia Traiana Sarmizegetusa, the Peșteana marsh is sometimes overlooked. Some tourists complain that there is little information on how to reach the marsh.
To get to the village, respectively to the entrance to the actual route to the marsh, just follow the local, well-paved county road. You will ride on a scenic road, perfect for cycling, with viewpoints towards the surrounding villages.
Then, look for the reformed church in the village. Your route to the marsh starts here and you should find informative panels, organized by the Pro Edu Densușianu Association.
The route to the Bottomless Lake is recommended for everyone, but not anytime. The carnivorous plant is best seen in summer, as are the butterfly colonies along the trail. The hare's-tail cottongrass, another rare plant that prefers wetlands, doesn't show off all year round, but only in certain months.
The path to the marsh is not recommended in case of rain, because of possible accidents.
You might bump into flocks of sheep on the upper plateau - pay close attention to the sheepdogs.
Leave the bike, secured to a fence of an electricity pole, where the path starts to ascend.
Sufficient water, especially on hot days.
