Every visitor feels that someone is watching them in this mysterious forest. The Hoia Baciu forest was first introduced to the world in 1968 through a photo by a photographer.

The photographer claims to have seen a UFO on the eve of a trip to the forest, and he immediately captures it. Shortly afterward, biologists conducted experiments to verify the incident and spoke to locals.

The locals said that they often see such a circular intense light ring. It goes upwards from the Hoia Baciu forest from time to time. The last UFO sighting was in 2002 by two Cluj residents.

They live in Manastur, a neighboring town very close to the forest. They saw a bright light, about 50 meters long, as long as a cigarette, rushing from the forest to the sky.

They saw the object for about 27 seconds. There is a local story that once a shepherd entered the forest to feed about 200 lambs. But the shepherd never returned, remaining disappeared.

After this incident, many people remained scared enough to enter this forest. There is a kind of fear among them. Anyone who dares to go into this forest may fail to come back again.

Those who dare to visit the forest have suffered from various physical ailments. These include dizziness, headache, nausea, blisters, scratches, and burns on the body.

Often, people go missing after entering the forest. But when they return, they have no idea what happened to them in the past or where they went.

Once a five-year-old girl wanders into the forest and disappears. After much searching, no trace of her became possible to find. Five years later, the girl came out of this forest.

When she asked where she had gone, where she had been for so long – the girl could not say anything. She could not remember anything from the last five years.

Scientists have found some valuable information about the Hoia Baciu forest. It works as a container for unusual levels of radioactive radiation. It also works as microwave radiation and infrared radiation.

There are also several deviations from the magnetic and electromagnetic fields. There is also a place right in the middle of the forest where no grass or other shrubs ever grow.

Scientists have examined the soil here, but they failed to find any substance. The substance is could interfere with the growth and development of any plant.

Locals call this place the epicenter of haunted events. Their idea is that some supernatural thing or an unsatisfied soul lives in this place.

Locals say that the forest killed many Romanian farmers about 50 years ago. They faced many haunting incidents before their deaths. Their dissatisfied souls may stick in this forest.

The coils of light and the invisible lady’s voice are the haunting incidents of the forest. There is also occasional laughter seen by the locals.

It is very normal for the temperature of this place to rise due to so much light. But no difference in temperature was observed by measuring with a thermal detector.


This mysterious Romanian forest covers an area of about 3 square kilometers. Its southern boundary starts from a ridge that runs east-west.

It lacks the steep southern slope of the hill, which rises from the Someșul Mic River. The forest ends on a smoother slope to the north and meets the Nadăș River.

The eastern end of the forest has a border with the Tăietura Turcului. It is an artificial valley that divides the hill from north to south and contains a traffic road.

The west end of this haunted forest reaches the northeastern slope of the Dealul Melcilor. Dealul Melcilor is nearby the Mujai Forest, which extends further westward.

The Bongar valley goes along the south end of this site. The valley contains a downy oak grove unique to the southern steppe.

Part of the northeastern end of this mysterious Romanian forest has a border with Valea Lungă. It goes through Eocene limestone and forms Cheile Baciului. Cheile Baciului is a valley with asymmetric slopes.

A small natural lake is upstream from Cheile Baciului, which is at the border of the forest. You will see several springs with potable water at the north edge. The north edge is in the Valea Lungă.
