In Romania, there is so much hidden wonderful places that are little known even Romanians, one of them falls Biggar. This waterfall is located at the south-west limit of the country, in the south of the Anina Mountains in Caras-Severin County, on the upper Anina mountain on the Mini River, in the Cheile Nerei-Beusnita National Park. The rounded waterfall is almost eight meters high, and falls over an unusual and dramatic green carpet of moss.
