Other Site Characteristics

Cheile Varghisului s-a format în calcarele jurasice ale panzei bucovinice si se intind între varfurile Also si Felso Mal (Vf. Tiva) din nordul Muntilor Persani. Pe aceasta portiune de cca. 1-2 km lungime si 500-600 m. grosime s-a dezvoltat un relief carstic, cu formele sale de suprafata si de adancime (doline, pesteri etc.). Cea mai mare pestera este pestera Orban Balazs aflat pe malul stang al paraului Varghis.;

4.2 Quality and importance

Cheile Varghisului reprezinta unul dintre cele mai interesante fenomene naturale din sudul Carpatilor Orientali, in care se regasesc o serie de elemente naturale de valoare exceptionala din punct de vedere botanic, zoologic, speologic, paleontologic si peisagistic. În flora cheilor, lânga cele 10 endemite carpatice si daco-balcanice se gasesc populatiile speciilor Cypripedium calceolus si Iris aphylla ssp. hungarica, aflate in Anexele II si III a Directivei Habitate. Pajistile deschise de stancarii, tufarisurile xeroterme, padurile de grohotisuri si fagetele adapostesc 44 specii de plante protejate pe listele rosii nationale. Stâncaria salbatica si padurile constituie habitat pentru o fauna extrem de bogata reprezentanta prin 18 specii de animale listate in Anexele II si III a Directivei Habitate, 9 specii de pasari din Directiva Pasari, respectiv alte 26 specii de animale ocrotite pe plan national si international. Este remarcabil efectivul populatiei de ursi, estimat la peste 30 de exemplare in timpul iernii. In Cheile Varghisului au fost identificate 17 specii de lilieci din cele 30 de specii existente in Romania. Colonia speciei Rhinolophus hipposideros este una dintre cele mai mari din tara. Este remarcabila si diversitatea ridicata a speciilor de lilieci in perioada de reproducere (august-octombrie). Situl adaposteste 8 tipuri de habitate listate in Anexa I a Directivei Habitate.;
