Guided Cycling Tour - Turda Gorge & Salina TurdaWe start out our cycling day from the western side of Cluj and for the first 10 km we are following beautiful forest-roads where beech-woods and pine-groves vary each other. Passing the forests and getting to a pasture, we are welcomed by a nice panorama and an enjoyable downhill.
We are going to cycle through villages and unpaved dirt-roads, until we get to the canyon's upper entrance. We will traverse the canyon, with its walls reaching 200 m along the Hesdat River, and cross some suspension bridges.
Leaving the 3 km long Turda Gorge, we will continue cycling towards Turda, where a fantastic underground world is awaiting us, the Salina Turda, the most amazing former salt mine in Romania.
It is the coolest underground place in the world, according to Business Insider. Boating, underground ferris-wheel and other fun surprises are waiting for us.
Transfer to Cluj.
ISASS was created for medical students all over the world, passionate and eager to experience real hands-on training in various surgical specialties.
