About Bicaz Canyon

The Bicaz Canyon (Cheile Bicazului) is a canyon in Romania, located in the north-east part of the country, in Neamt and Harghita counties.

The canyon was dug by the waters of Bicaz River and it serves as a passageway between the Romanian provinces of Moldova and Transylvania.

It is a noted location to see the wallcreeper, an uncommon cliff-dwelling bird.

The road along the 8 kilometres of ravines, often in serpentines, with rock on one side and a sheer drop on the other, is one of the most spectacular drives in the country.

Also, within the Chei there is Lacul Rosu (the Red Lake), with its traditional cabins, hotels, and its famous lake (situated at 980m altitude) caused by a landslide in the 19th century.

Cheile Bicazului is one of the main rock climbing sites in Romania.
