All about the trip
Salt has been extracted out of the hills of Turda for more than two millennia, while the mines here have continuously produced salt from the middle-ages, up to 1932. The chambers, tunnels and galleries form a palace of salt hundreds of meters deep into the earth. After being refurbished in 2008, the mines of Turda became the main tourist attraction and a must-see for anyone passing through these parts.
A few kilometers away, however, another monumental site is located: the Turda Gorge. The nature reserve of Turda Gorge is truly impressive. The trail we follow goes by the river, through the gorge, and will reveal a unique and superb view.
The gorge is 1.3 kilometers long and is towered by walls of rock up to 200 meters high. The landscape is dominated by tall, steep rocks, sharp peaks, rock towers, debris-slides, over 50 caves, arches and alcoves. This place is home to over 1000 species of plants and animals, many of them being protected species.
This is a moderate 4,5 – 5 hour hiking with a level difference of 620 meters ascending and 620 meters descending.What Wikipedia Says
