On this section we are heading to Ukraine. We cycle north from Avasala and cycle through the pass between Gutin and the Avas Mountains to the Tisza, which is now part of the Maramures Basin. We cross the border at Máramarossziget. Aknaszlatina has a centuries-old salt mining tradition. Today you can find here baths with high salt concentration. The development of this bathing area is due to the salt released from the former flooded mines. It is not thermal water, however, it is known to have beneficial effects. At the end of the tour we will find several privately owned bathing areas from which we can visit the ones we like.
