Transursoaia Road, as it was named by the locals makes the connection between DN1 E60 in the city of Huedin with DN 75 in Albac, Sunset Mountains, Transylvania – Romania. The road snakes up to the Dark Hill and Belisului Valley to the village of Horea.

You will be passing by Belis – Fantanele Dam, an artificial lake 990 m in altitude in Gilau Mountains, created with hydro energetic purposes.

In order for the Dam to be created during the communism times some of the villages had to be re-located.

Nowadays on dry season when the level of the water is lowered you can still see some of the ruins of the abandoned houses, the most famous being the ruins of the Giurcuta de Jos Church with its tower coming out of the water.

80 km of asphalt on a narrow mountain road offering some great riding that can take up to 1h30min.

Add some time to enjoy a boat ride on the lake.
The side of the road offers traditional pit stops carved in wood by the locals, where you can relax for a few minutes before getting on your motorbike and on the road again.

Short deviation: in Rachitele area – the Vail of The Bride Waterfall, 30m of waterfall attracting visitors from all over the world.

Accommodation: The region offers plenty of accommodations in country inns or guest houses with hosts offering traditional food and drinks.

Best to ride: From May to October, depending on the weather. Caution is required as there are sections of narrow areas. Best to be ridden during the day as the mountains will reward the riders with spectacular views.
