We wanted to visit this natural reserve in the last days of summer. The place is a little bit remote and the access is quite hard even by car. After you arrive at the base camp you take a narrow forest road to the river....More

A very good place for a day trip, just near Cluj-Napoca. Take a walk along the river, cross the river on a bridge, admire nature, climb the cliffs (with proper equipment) or just enjoy the walk and don't forget to take pictures of this beautiful...More

It is a very nice place, mostly because you cannot visit it by car and you have to walk by the side of the river. That is kind of an adventure too.

The roads to drive there are just ok .Once you get there on the top of any hillside you get to see great views of the mountains and all the areas around with a very nice green landscape in the late spring time

From Cluj you can take a bus or a minibus to Turda. From Turda by taxi. I m not sure if there are minibuses to Cheile Turzii. Most people go by own car.
