“Cheile Turzii”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

The gorge itself is nice, not so special though. The stream is not clean and seems to be polluted from the town upstream of the gorge. Easy walk along the stream about 1.5 km, long and steep climbing from both sides to get on top, worth the view from up above. You can find several caves along the way.
There is a pub/restaurant at the bottom of the gorge offering some nice meals and camping (they spoke English). They dont have a flat surface to camp on, wanted 10 lei per tent or 20 lei per tent+shower, they have new showers inside and OK toilets. Optional camping is on a parking lot 300m back which seems to be used a lot more than this place. They also seem to offer staying in small cabins (we did not ask), some of them were falling apart though. They had not responded to our email communication before we went.

“Beautiful Hike”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Lovely hike, mostly along a stream. After a short walk though the forest you walk along the stream and go back and forth over the stream on a series of bridges. You will find people of all ages along the path. A few spots could be challenging to those with agility issues, but easily done without hiking boots or any special skills.

Reviewed July 17, 2013

Beautiful scenery, not too difficult but not to easy either, avoid going when it is too hot weather.

“Accesible wild landscape”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Easy to get there by car (about 30 km from Cluj, to Turda direction) and easy to walk through the gorge, because there is a large and solid pathway and 4 bridges. The cool, whispering water and the shadow of the trees makes a splendid place for trip with all the family, including children and elder persons. There are necessary good sport shoos and if you want to eat there, you must bring some food from home, because there are no permanent facilities like a restaurant or bar. In holidays is possible to be open a small bar. There is a camping too, but I don”t no the quality of it. To go and retourn it takes about 2-3 hours, very slow walking. The landscape is beautiful, wild and is possible to see a rare bird that nest there, the acvila.

“No garbage / Wonderfull natural place to visit”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

This gorge is the most important and impresive natural wonder around Cluj. You have to make a visit here.
I have been here about 10 years ago for the first time. I never get borred when i`m there. All the time i find something new, something different.
For the people from Romania i recommend you to make a visit in each season of the year.
