This place is just great bring your car maybe park the car before the narrow road starts in high season be there before 8,30 park and then walk to the other side its an amazing walk and you see more and can take great pictures....More
We were in the region and as the temperature was reaching 38C, we decided to explore the Gorges (late in the afternoon).
The site is impressive and it deserves a visit. However descending to have a bath is not very easy. As it is very...More
Managed to waste an afternoon here. Much more impressive than the pics. We parked at car park 2 which allowed us to walk Hermitage, about a 20min walk, it is closer if you go through tunnel and park on other side but please are very...More
Park at the cafe at the southern end of the balcony road (toilets and refreshments) and photo opportunity. Short walk from there to the hermitage -boots or trainers necessary. There is also a little cafe there serving drinks and ice creams. We did the drive...More
What an interesting place this is with the Ermitage worked into the cliffs. Walking is not our forte but we drove through the Gorge and were treated to wonderful views. Fortunately, we had very clear and sunny weather and the sandwich from the little café...More
We were taken here by a local in his VW van. The road is very twisty with large overhangs, with very few passing places. The cliff formations are incredible, with excellent examples of wind and water erosion. (There are some very strong winds down the...More
This is a venue that you actually have to visit in order to get the full impression of it. We viewed it from a distance and have only our pictures to tell us what's there. After reading the reviews of people who actually went there,...More
We go back again and again. The l'hermitage is a very sacred place to meditate and sit quietly - a simple but exquisite chapel in a cave with amazing wooden sculptures; The gorge is inspiring to walk through and through the gorge there are places...More
Somewhere you need to experience to really appreciate . My daughter was the driver and fortunately a very good one. The road through the gorges is very twisting with large overhangs of rock. For passengers the view of the drop down to the river is...More
We drove through the gorge after a visit to nearby chateau Queribus.
The single alternate traffic system was in place and worked really well as there are few places wide enough for traffic to pass. The views up and down the gorge were impressive as...More

We drove this in a rented Fiat Panda on Sunday and a camper van, style with a bed over the drivers head, came through and passed us (on coming) too. However, I could not vouch for whether they made out to the end. One vw golf came through and had a massive scratch on the side. 2 camper vans meeting head on could only pass each other in a couple of spots and not sure they'd make it, who would reverse????
Its not just the height, it's the narrow road plus small passing places of which there are few. I suggest approaching at the car park and cafe end, where you park to visit the Hermitage below, -then walk the road a bit and assess the traffic and ask in the cafe too. Make a decision and have a plan B taking you the long way around. Its all so scenic you could find a lovely route around.
