Really enjoyed the hike through the gorge.. it wasn't complicated and didn't take a long time. Beautiful view surrounding you all the time if you look up at the stones, or down at the water. Many fun bridges as well ;) There are other trails...More

Romantic, wild, full of spectacular views. If you have a good hiking shoe, it is enough to conquer this canyon.

We hiked this with a large group of friends, and were amazed by the beauty of this place. The hiking path is slippery so wear proper footwear.

If you're gonna be like me and do absolutely zero research before going there, you're in for a treat. It's basically one hour of hiking and it's awesome! Make sure you start at the beginning and not at the end of the gorge, like I...More

After visiting the salt mine, this is a great way to continue your day. We were not charged at entrance, although there is a sign saying that they do. It took us about 1,5h to go and come back. The place is in good conditions...More

Really beautiful to walk through the whole thing but do be aware that it does become quite difficult at points and will require you to hold on to the rope at the side. If you have any problems walking then it will not be for...More

Turda Gorge can be accessed at two different starting points, and takes about 1 1/2 to 2 hours to transverse through the gorge, but it is a beautiful and worthwhile hike. I would rate this trail as a moderate hike as it transverse from flat,...More

Was planning visit here during our stay in Cluj. Noticed map on trip advisor site is wrong, placing gorge just outside western edge of city. Be careful; it is east and 20km away. Needs correcting.

Loved our day at Cheile Turzii. The stones on the path get very slippery when wet but on a dry day we had no problems. Lots of different sights, so much to see!

Easily reached from Turda. Great view approaching the place and easy parking with a few kiosks in the parking lot where one could stop after the walk. The gorge is rather short and not so deep but still an enjoyable short walk.

I do not know how much it costs to go by taxi to Cheile Turzii, but I think that's pretty much it. You could go with a city bus to Cheia and from there to walk because it is close! checks on the map. but via ferrata route it... More

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.
