Meledic salt Karst Plateau is located in the north-western part of Mânzăleşti Commune, bordered by Slănic River, Meledic Creek and Jghiabului Valley. The altitude is 608 m and it covers 1.7 Km².
The salt massive that characterizes the Meledic Plateau is bordered by a breccia coating that allows the water infiltration; therefore were generated a very large chain of caves, high ravines and wide salt outcrops.
The longest salt cave in Europe and the second in the world is 6s Salt Cave, with 3.234 m development and 42 m depth. It was found in September, 13, 1980. Nine other caves with lengths between 10 m and 152 m are found here. The total number of registered cavities is 47. The mapping of all these were the work of Ică Giurgiu and of Speleology Team Club 'Emil Racoviţă', Bucharest, between 1978 and 1995.
