Natural tourist attractions

The landscape resources of the relief are expressed by low hills in conditions of maximum relief energy of 200 m.

As a result, hilly landscape is present in the central-south-eastern part of the micro-region, covered with deciduous forests and finished by the contact of the foothill with the plain, in contrast with the landscape of Tăşnad area, characterized by the facilities for the use of thermal waters, but also of the village Pir, with a double use, that of a vineyard landscape.

Climatic and bioclimatic resources are characterized by a temperate- continental climate with moderate features, plains and low hills, mild winters and moderate winters, the annual average temperature is between 9- 100C and extreme temperature values of and 200C in July and - 1.5 to -2.00 C in January. The average annual sunshine exceeds 2000 hours, the annual average cloud cover is 5.5 tenths and the annual average rainfall amount is about 700 mm.

The general bioclimatic stress index (the result of lung and skin stress indices) has an annual average of 40 (compared with 60-65 in the Câmpia Română (Romanian Plain) and 130 on Omu Peak at 2507m altitude in the Meridional Carpathians – Bucegi Mountains).
As a result, March and October are relaxing, April, November balanced in terms of skin stress, while December-February intervals are hypertonic and June to September hypotonic.

Regarding the lung stress, from November to March we distinguish a moderate dehydrating effect; from May to September are characterized by an easy moisturizing effect and October and April are balanced..

These indices are specific to a sedative, indifferent and sparing bioclimate, with less aggressive climatic factors, especially in extreme seasons. As a result, the human body does not have to make great efforts of acclimatization. The plain and low hills Bioclimate is indicated to the people that cannot handle climate contrasts and climatic stress factors. This bioclimate has no contraindications, typical for rest, indicated to healthy but exhausted individuals. The climate cure along with the thermal water cure can be achieved outdoors from May to September, and inside the facilities, the rest of the year.

Water resources

The Micro-region Tăşnad is affiliated to the north-south sheet from the contact of the Western Hills with the Western Plain, where, in the context of an emphasized tectonism were created conditions for the existence of deep thermal waters, very valuable for spas, because of their physical (thermalism) and hydrochemical characteristics.

The hot spring water deposit was intercepted by a drilling conducted in 1978 at a depth of 950 m, and a thickness of 600 m, at the contact of the high plain with the front of the foothill, in the deep structures of the crustal faults of the Western Plain formed during the Mesozoic Era.

The deposit characteristics revealed multiple use options.

The needed flow is very high 17 l / s = 60 m3 / hour = 1400 m3 in 24 hours (with the possibility of water accumulation in spas overnight and draining the pool the next day). The deposit has an ascending-artesian character overflowing by drilling at a pressure of four atmospheres.

The surface water temperature reaches 70°C and requires time for cooling. This allows its intermediate use as a heating agent, although its temperature needs to be increased with the help of the heat pumps.

The chemical and microbiological analysis of the thermal waters reveals according to water test report no. 47 / 04.01.2007 issued by the National Institute of Rehabilitation, Physical Medicine and Balneoclimatology, that the thermal water can be used in the external cures of the following diseases:

  • degenerative Rheumatism
  • abarticular Rheumatism
  • chronic peripheral neurological diseases
  • chronic gynaecological (besides flare-up inflammations)
  • Posttraumatic stress disorders
  • Associated diseases (professional diseases, endocrine disorders, metabolic disorders)

 The results of the analysis show a sodium bicarbonate, chloride, hyperthermal, hypotonic, mineral-rich water.

From the minerals predominate chlorine-bicarbonate-sulphate (anions are dominant) sodium-calcium- magnesium in the presence of ammonium and potassium.

The objectives artificial lakes, ponds are scattered in the area of several communes, and are suitable for several categories of tourism, leisure nautical tourism, fishing tourism and hunting tourism (aquatic birds).
The largest lake complex with a total surface are of 36.6 ha located in Santău commune (of which Chereuşa lake 23 ha); Pir with numerous small lakes, with a surface area of more than 4 ha (Sărvăzăl, Birtocut, Fornitaş, Cânepişte); Săcăşeni with Herestet or Săuca Lake, Bocdarâtake, 1 ha, located in a good position and a beautiful landscape.

Biogeographical tourist resources, related to plants, refer especially to the forest landscape which dominates the south-eastern part of the microregion, and mainly consists of deciduous forests, oak being one of the dominant trees (pedunculate oak, Turkey oak, poplar, linden, even locust at contact with the plain). Within this landescape we can find several forests with a leisure tourism function within the area of Tăşnad Săcăşeni, Cehal, destinations for leisure tourism at weekends but also a landscape forest reserve in Huta Chegii with a high concentration of European wild pear (Pirrus piraster ). The hydrophilic vegetation consists of reed that abounds in the shallow of the lake and contributes to shaping specific small landscapes.

The very rich fauna existing in the oak forests belongs to the forest hunting funds, very valuable, with impact on hunting tourism. Such representative funds exist for boar (Sus scrofa scrofa) in the forestry sectors of Săcăşeni, Cehal, for roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) in Cehal and for red deer (Cervi Elephus) and small game, especially rabbit (Lepus euopeus) again in Săcăşeni and Cehal. In the Cheigii forest (Săcăşeni commune) lives a very rare species, the wild cat.
