Dambovicioara Gorges

A narrow road through the Dambovicioara Gorges

Located in the north-eastern part of Argeş County, in Romania, Cheile Dâmbovicioarei is a gorge carved by the the Dambovicioara River.

Located in the foothills of Piatra Craiului Mountains, within the Piatra Craiului National Park, the gorge is 5 km long with high cliffs and straight to the side and across the river Dambovicioara, with vertical walls that sometimes exceed 200 meters in height. These streams may dry during the summer, especially in the gorges area, or increase their water flows during the snow melting and spring rain periods (May - June).

The road running through the narrow and almost inaccessible gorges is called DJ730. It’s totally paved. The road is 5.1 km long, running south-north from Podu Dâmboviței towards Dâmbovicioara. High risk of rock slides.
