Seche Bog and Szökő Waterfall


Harghita County, Romania


The springs that appear under Mădăraş Peak have a slower flow, soak the soils with water and together with the climatic conditions specific to the upper sub-Alpine-mountains, create conditions for peat formation.

On this area there are relict species from the glacial period (round-leaved sundew, pinguicula), the survival of which was facilitated by the cold climate of the Harghita Mountains.

Where the incline of the slope grows, the springs reappear and form the Seche Creek, known for its picturesque waterfall.

Seche Swamp with the Mădăraş Peak are included in the "area of Community interest Harghita Mădăraş" that is part of the Natura 2000 network.

The protection area extends to 182 hectares, while the actual surface of the marsh covers about 30 hectares.
