In 2001 we began with cognitional trips to Romania and organized first trip to Bihor Mountains (M. Gaško, F. Horčík, T. Máté, V. Papáč and J. Psotka). Our route took us through remarkable places on Padiş Plateau and in Vlădeasa Mountains. Diary from the trip was published by Máté (2001). On July 2002 we realized next journey to Romania. In that year we passed through Sighiştel Valley for the first time (F. Horčík, V. Papáč and J. Psotka). We spent one day in the valley by visiting its most known caves (Drăcoaia, Pişolca, Coliboaia, Magura) and our cognitional trip continued across the Bihor Mts. In the Drăcoaia Cave (Devil´s cave), which was well-known among the local people, we recognized small fist-sized hole with intensive, roaring air draught. Hole was situated near the end of the cave under the flowstone barrier. Cavers were probably aware of it but it was obvious that no one tried to dig there. We removed some sediment only by our hands. Finally we reached agreement that we will return with stronger team.
