I did this climb very early in the morning and therefore with moderate traffic. The climb is relatively easy but long. The scenery is beautiful and the road has some wonderful curves and turns. I think this road must be very busy in the middle of a summer day, but it remains one of my best memories... read more

The pass has beautiful views of the lowlands around Sibiu. And once you reach the plateau, it is a true "Carrera Bahn" pass.

Der Pass hat wunderschöne Aussichten auf die Tiefebene um Sibiu herum. Und ab Erreichen der Hochebene ist er ein wahrer "Carrera Bahn" Pass.

J'ai fait cette montée de très bonne heure et donc avec une circulation modérée. La montée est relativement facile mais longue. Le paysage est magnifique et la route fait de magnifiques courbes et virages. Je pense que cette route doit être très fréquenté en pleine journée d'été mais reste un de mes meilleurs souvenirs de la tcrno5.
