A paved mountain road to Harghita-Mădăraș in Romania

Madarasi-Hargita is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.624m (5,328ft) above the sea level, located in Harghita county, in eastern Transylvania, Romania.

Set high in the Harghita mountain range, in the Eastern Carpathians of Romania, the road to the summit was recently paved. It’s pretty steep, with a lot of turns, and includes some narrow sections. At the summit is a ski resort, a hotel, and the Harghita Madaras chalet, built in 1941 with the Hungarian government's support.

Tucked away in the center of the country, the road is 33.8 km (21 miles) long, running from Sub Cetate to Vlăhița. Traffic jams are common.
