“a natural attraction close to Cluj”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

I used to be wilder in the past. Now you have to pay a ticket, but at least it's cleaner. It is a nice day-trip in nature.

“Overwhelmed by garbage”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

The gorge is spectacular, but there are no visitor facilities whatsoever. The trail through the gorge starts at a reeking skip overflowing with garbage, and subsequently you'll find plastic bottles, beer cans and candy wrappers every few metres. A national treasure ruined by inconsiderate visitors and a complete absence of management.

“The nicest place around Cluj”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

Not very easy to find (do not take the most direct road from Turda, it's a trap !), but once you're there it's really a pleasure. Small fee at the entrance, but it doesn't matter.
Avoid rainy days, because you walk on stones and you can fall... a few meters.
There is a natural mountain water source in the middle of the gorge, perfect for refreshing.

“spectacular walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

There was a fee to enter the Gourge - about £2 -£3 each but worth the cost. I didn't have time to do the gorge justice but was impressed all the same. The mountain climbers had left evidence of there efforts and markings of the routes that could be taken. Various bridges cross the gorge which add to the experience and a wire along part of the walk is useful where the path is quite awkward. Wonderful views of the summit along the way.

“extraordinary views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

if you go to Turda make sure you take time to visit Cheile Turzii. It's a nature wonder! The tour takes about an hour. Make sure you wear confortable shoes. It's not a place for kids under 5 years old, as the terain is a bit narow someplaces.
