Harghita-Mădăraș, a paved mountain road in Romania

Madarasi-Hargita is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.650m (5,413ft) above the sea level, located in the Harghita mountain range, in the Eastern Carpathians of Romania.

The road to the summit was asphalted recently. It’s pretty steep, with a lot of turns, and includes some narrow sections. There are traffic jams sometimes. At the summit there’s a ski resort, a hotel, and the Harghita Madaras chalet, built in 1941 with the Hungarian government's support.
