Ciuc Mountain

Road trip guide: Conquering Ciuc Mountain

Munții Ciucului is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 1.361m (4,465ft) above the sea level, located in Harghita County, in eastern Transylvania, Romania.

Set high in the Eastern Carpathian mountains, the road to the summit is totally unpaved and pretty narrow. A 4x4 vehicle with high clearance is required.

Tucked away in the center of Romania, the road to the summit is 24.3km (15.09 miles) long starting at Pasul Ghimeș. It’s a very steep drive, hitting a 20% of maximum gradient through some ramps.
