We traveled this road in Autumn so not only were the towering cliffs impressive the reds, yellows and bronze of the tree leaves on the sunny day that we were traveling added to this spectacular drive. The added benefit of traveling at this time was there were few other tourists as the road is windy with rock on one side and deep drops the other. Due to the small numbers we were able to park and walk enjoying the scenery, if you decide to do this good walking shoes are necessary.

The Bicaz Canyon - or Bicaz Gorge - one of the most spectacular places in Romania.
It is situated between Bicaz and Lacu Rosu on the road DN12C and it is one of the passes between Moldavia and Transylvania - Harghita to Neamt County in Romania.
The canyon has been carved through millennia by the Bicaz River and today is a breathtaking scenery- one of the most beautiful roads you can drive in Romania.
The length is about 8 km and you have an area where more cars can stop - roughly in the middle of the gorge - and there are some souvenir shops too.
If you want you can hike also in the area , there are several tracks however be aware , this is bear country and secondarily be prepared with hiking booths and you need to be in top physical shape to mitigate the cliffs of the area.
Also be very careful when driving - people tend to stop recklessly and tend to drive with their eyes on the scenery and not on the road.
Overall a great place - you can stop for a few (hundred :) ) pics and enjoy the views.

We were on a 5 week driving trip and this was one of our favorite places! The beauty of the Bicaz Gorge cannot be described, but the photos speak for themselves. We were there in late September when the trees were turning beautiful colors. We had stayed overnight at nearby Red Lake Inn (not recommended) to be able to drive the gorge at the best time of day for light and were not disappointed at all. It is a truly magnificent place. When you see souvenir stalls along the way, do stop...not for souvenirs, but because they know this is a place to stop for photos and that's why they set up their wares there. Once you pass the booths, you have missed it. I don't know if this would be such a pleasant drive during high tourist season as I'm sure the buses would make it less pleasurable, but it is indeed an award winning drive.

Utterly fantastic experience. So this place is amazing and definitely earns it place as a wonder of the world. It is especially fun if you can hike and camp there. Just one of the most beautiful and spectacular places on earth.

Spectacular gorge/canyon. Only a few kilometres from start to end, but definitely worth a visit. Don't forget to rent a little boat to go rowing on the red lake while there :)

I was really impressed about that trip on Cheile Bicazului, very nice landmarks in combination with narrow roads, really worth the trip. There is also a waterfall nearby.
