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. It culminates at the mountain called Retgezat (something more than 8000 English feet above the sea), closing up one end of the Zsil valley, and by Earang, little inferior in height, proudly standing up as a barrier at the other end.

It takes its rise and receives two im­ portant tributaries from that part of the Carpathians separating Hungary from Moldavia. Like many of the other streams of this part of Europe, it col­ lects the waters of a large area, and conveys them out of a closed district by deep fissures or by gorges broken through the main chain of the mountains. The cultivation of the Maros valley is by no means neglected. The ground is covered with corn crops, or else left in grass on the lower lands, while the hill sides are clothed with vines for some height, and then crowned with oak, beech, and other wood.

Atcred by small bub­ bling streams. Very few villages are seen hereabouts, but there are some, and, as elsewhere, they vary much in appearance; one or two being clean, pretty, with well-built houses inclosed in cultivated gardens, and others so miserable and dirty that they would be con­ sidered unfit, in better-cared-for districts, even for the worst-regulated pigstyes of the poorest families. r Some of the geological features of this part of the country are worthy of a brief notice. Low hills of schist and slaty rocks are covered with rounded waterworn pebbles at a height of several yards above the highest level of the stream.
