A memorable road trip to Cabana Piatra Arsă
Piatra Arsa is a high mountain cabin at an elevation of 1.970m (6,463ft) above the sea level, located on the north of Prahova County, in central Romania. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.
The road to the cabin, located in the Bucegi Mountains, is asphalted. It’s called DJ713. Driving at night, or in poor visibility, is not recommended for drivers unfamiliar with the road. This route is not recommended if your passengers are prone to car sickness. Don’t stuff your belly too much. Eventually, you might feel vomiting temptations. Expect a road pretty steep.
Starting from Cabana Dichiu at 1.603m above the sea level, the ascent is 8.9 km long. Over this distance the elevation gain is 367 meters. The average gradient is 4.12%.
