Location & Access

Parang Mountains are located in the northeastern part of Gorj County, its alpine crest forming the natural border with the counties of Hunedoara and Valcea. There are several roads that enter the mountains, the Transalpina Mountain Road (67C) passing over the ridge from one side to the other. Following this road, from Urdele Pass under the peak of Papusa, travelers can start the marked hiking path connecting the highest peaks of Parang. There are, of course, other paths that cross the mountains and make access relatively facile on foot. Another road (7A) crosses Parang Mountains from east to west, intersecting the Transalpina road.
