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.

Close to Cluj, around 20 km, this place is a marvel of nature. Crossed by a river, it will give you a beautiful experience of the real nature. Craved stones by the water and the natural walls will leave you with a wonderful memory.

Don't miss the view from the hill before to go down to the Gorges. Once inside the gorges, enjoy the the cliffs, listen to the birds and the river and have a nice trek! What a pity the third bridge is damaged and it does...More

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.
