Uz basin topography presents a complex combination of forms, where we meet the average height and low mountains, hills and valley. The highest forms of relief are Nemira Mountains with peaks:

  • Nemira Mare 1648 m;
  • Nemira Ţiganca (The Gipsy) 1626 m;
  • Şandru Mare 1639 m;
  • Osoiul 1553 m;
  • Cărunta (The Grey Lady) 1517 m.

Nemira - Şandru ridge orientation on north – south direction has an obvious influence on the direction of the streams’ flow.

Crossed by Uz River on a distance of approximately 12 km, Uz Valley discloses the following topography:

  • Erosion and denudation sculptural reliefs: fields (low and smooth inter-rivers, formed by linear and lateral river erosions, by processes of erosion and denudation on the slopes) are another component of Dărmăneşti landform.
  • Accumulation of denudation -river reliefs:
    • terraces;
    • major river bed;
    • glacises;
    • dejection cones.

Terraces:

  • Lower terraces – are separated by the medium terraces through sharp steeps.
  • Medium terraces (70-80 m) – are important agricultural areas (cereals, green crops, trees).
  • The major river bed – begins downstream of "Poiana Uzului" accumulation lake to its confluence with Trotuş River, and has different widths ranging between 150-2000 m.

The glacises - occur at the contact between different levels of terraces and in contact with the major river bed.
The dejection cones:

  • Same contacts as glacises are scattered by pro-river debris.
  • Greater contacts occur at the confluence of mountain streams with Uz River, like Izvorul negru spring (the Black Spring), Sălăvăstru, Pitici (Dwarves) and Boiştea.

Platforms - higher forms and older than terraces.
Lower platform – is represented by erosion evidences, like some small plateaus: Măguricea Hill (527 m), Deluceanu (525 m), Cărăboaia or Brădet (561 m).
Middle platform – is represented by Focul lui Ivan Peak (Ivan’s Fire Peak) (745 m), Obcina Sălătrucului (775 m), Dealul Mare (Big Hill) (750 m).
Slopes - versions vary between 5-50 degrees, to 1-3 degrees in the meadow areas, and 0-6 degrees in the inter-rivers and terraces bridge areas.
