About Turda Canyon

Turda Canyon (Cheile Turzii)  is a natural reserve (on Hasdate River) situated 6 km west of Turda and about 15 km south-east of Cluj-Napoca, in Transylvania.
The canyon, was formed through the erosion of the jurasic calcar of the mountain, is 2.500 m long and the walls have heights reaching 200 m. The total surface of the canyon is of 324 ha.
The Canyon contains one of the richest and most scenic karst landscapes in Romania. More than 1.000 plants and animal species (some of them rare or endangered, like the wild garlic or some species of eagle) live here.

The site has been inhabited since the neolithic.

There are some 60 known caves, almost all of them being of small size (the longest one has 120 m).
