A journey up to the sky
Transalpina is the highest traffic road in the Carpathians, both in Romania and abroad, reaching an altitude of 2145 m in Urdele Clough. The road crosses from the North to the South the Parang Mountains being parallel with Oltului Valley and Jiului Valley and connects Saliste locality in Sibiu county to Novaci locality in Gorj county. Although higher and more picturesque than Transfagarasanu Road, and although a national traffic road, Transalpina was never been asphalted until 2009, fact that preserved its special authentic charm, that very few of the places in the country have.
From Zan Hotel you can easily reach Transalpina through Obarsia Lotrului.
