 Cheile Bicazului 


Bicaz Gorge [Cheile Bicazului] is situated in N-E of Romania, in Hasmas Mountains, being considered one of the most beautiful touristic gorges in the country.
Formed by the water of Bicaz river, the gorge makes the connection between two historical regions in Romania: Moldavia and Transylvania. The road that crosses them is DN12C. It is in this region that you will also find the Red Lake, a lake formed by landslide and one of the main touristic attractions in the area.

Easiest access: Bicaz city or the villages situated in the gorge
Accommodation: hostels in Bicaz, camping in the hills surrounding the gorge, in guesthouses found in the villages in the gorge.
Trek to the climbing areas: 10 - 30 minutes

There are several routes that start off the road so you will have the pleasure of surprising drivers but also the responsibility of climbing careful as not to rocks on cars or souvenir booths bellow you.
