The main destination of our tour is Székelyvarság, the dispersed settlement with a special atmosphere found on the picturesque plateau. We’ll visit real local attractions such as the watermill, the Csorgókő waterfall, the local pub called “Parliament”, then after looking around from one of the four lookout towers of the village we’ll have locally grown trout for lunch. Finally we’ll finish our tour with kayaking at the Zetelaki dam.
Székelyvarság is the largest dispersed settlement of Harghita county, located at an aprox. 77 km2 area in the source region of Nagy-Küküllő river. The village – also known as “shingle land” – with it’s magical farmland atmosphere is a real specialty.
We’ll visit the 200-year-old water mill, which also operates a circular saw. The owner of the water mill always welcomes the visitors and presents the mill with enthusiasm.
The Csorgókő waterfall is located in a fresh forest. Seven springs feed the two-steps waterfall falling from the edge of a 7 m high cliff. From here, the water is heading towards the Nagy Küküllő river.
Not far from here, we’ll take a short break in the local pub called “Parliament”. Then we climb up on one of the four lookout towers of the village.
Our lunch would be nothing else than a trout grown locally in lakes built on mountain streams.
We’ll finish our day with kayaking at the Zetelaki dam, 8 km from far from Székelyvarság.
