The valley of Hátzeg itself is wide, long, and open. It is a separate valley, opening from the west into the Strehl valley; commencing at the foot of Retgezat, it terminates near the town of Hátzeg. The physical geography of this part of the Carpa­ thian chain is well seen in the valley of the Strehl and of the small tributary entering near Hátzeg. The chief mountain axis ranges east and west at some distance to the south.

There is hardly a limit to the amount of produce obtainable from these alluvial lands. The true hills rise at first quite abruptly from the plain, and are recognized by the geological eye as being absolutely unconnected with the undulations above spoken of.
