Buteşti Gorge (Rom.: Cheile Butești) is a gorge dug by the Camenca River in a reef with a length of over 2 km and a width of 125 m. The limestone reef formed 15-20 million years ago from skeletons of corals, molluscs, shells, algae, animals and marine organisms that populated the warm waters of the Sarmatian Sea and the Tortonian Sea that then covered northern Moldova. In the reef were formed caves of various dimensions where fossilized bones of cavern, lion, rhino, mammoth and bumble bears were discovered. In one of the caves there is a human settlement dated from the Paleolithic and Mesolithic era. The Buteşti gorge is crowned with a cliff that resembles an elephant viewed from the profile.
