Grota lui Hili – Cheile Turzii – Via Ferrata

Cheile Turzii, it has to be one of my favorite place to go with my family for a quick walk, hiking, camping…, beside being my favorite place, today it’s also my first via ferrata experience.

I am with my good friend Mihai, a couple from Germany that we met on the way and the funniest via ferrata guide…Cornel. This is a 350m via ferrata trail with a 200 mt altitude. The trail is called Grota Hilli due to the spectacular opening in the cliff around the end of the trail. I

t takes about 50 min to go up and about another 50 min to get down. It has a moderate difficulty, so if you have done via ferrata before it shouldn’t cause you any problems, otherwise I do recommend going with a guide. In either cases, do check with the local Rescue team if the steel cables are in place, to be totally safe.
