Getting there

From the center of Orăștie we follow the asphalted road to Orăștioara (Lower and Upper), Costești and Grădiștea de Munte. Beware of potential potholes along the way, as they appear unexpectedly!

From Grădiștea de Munte, the road narrows, but it is (in 2020) of good quality. The road ends with a parking lot for about 50 cars.

Parking

In addition to the parking lot, you can also park on the side of the road.

Equipment

We are in the mountains, the clouds can bring rain by surprise. For this reason we recommend hiking boots and a raincoat.
