Visit the Cheile Nerei - Beușnița National Park

If you are having a few sunny off-days available you might want to go and visit the Cheile Nerei - Beușnița National Park. Even though the elevation is quite low, at about 500 meters above sea level, you will have many hiking opportunities that are rewarding and fun for the whole family. For the mountain bike enthusiasts, we recommend visiting Ochiul Beiului Lake but for more options please read the full list below.

Ochiul Beiului Waterflow

Best road to Cheile Nerei


Beusnita Waterfall

  • The longest gorge in Romania, a remarkable and approachable tourist route for you to enjoy.
  • At the two extremes of the gorge you will find two karstic lakes, Ochiul Beiului which is renowned for its spectacular color and Lacul Dracului (Devil’s Lake), a unique karst phenomenon in our country.
  • Three waterfalls that you should not miss: Beuşniţa, Văioaga and Bigăr.

Good to know

  • Road: The access to the park is made via a paved road with visible markings along the path.
  • Tax: To enter the park you need to pay an entrance fee of about 1 euro per person.
  • Accommodation:  You can choose from a multitude of place where to stay depending on the price and personal preference. You can also choose to sleep by tent in any clearing you find suitable as long as you leave the area as you have found it; some common places would be near Cantonul Damian, near Lacul Dracului or at Păstrăvărie where you have an organised camping place (Camping Valea Beiului). Some accommodation examples (some are closer or farther away from the park): Casa cu Roti - Sasca Română Village; Casa cu Platani - Ciclova Montană Village; Rocker’s Inn - Sasca Montană Village;
  • Campfire: You can build a campfire only in special designated areas.
  • Water sources: There are plenty small great springs in the area but during the summer, when temperatures are high, they tend to run dry and as such we recommend bringing your own supply.

Stuff to do

  • The area is very generous in terms of tourism and sporting activities that include: speleology, canyoning, rappelling, rafting, zip lining, horseback riding, hiking and cycling.
  • Talking about hiking the routes in this area are pretty easy with low altitude differences from the start to end of each track. For an overview of the hiking trails please consult this map or this one.

Average temperatures

  • The annual average temperatures are about 10-12°C based on altitude. Usually in the summer you can expect around 28 to 32+°C and in winter you will have -3 to 3°C during the day. You can expect around 60 clear sunny days and around 120 cloudy days per year. Check the current local temperatures at Cheile Nerei from YR.

  1. Hi. How do I get there by public transport? I am coming from Hateg.

    1. Hi,

      As I can see you can only go as far as Oravita using public transportation. For this you will have to take the bus from Hateg to Resita (every working day at 07:35) and from Resita to Oravita (every working day from at 12:32). From Oravita you will have to hitch-hike as there are no buses or trains.

      Have a great adventure!

  2. Hiya, looks fabulous. We are coming from England next year, can you recommend or suggest places where we can find remote, accommodation with private facilities (not shared) for 2 people? Thanks, Rachel & Colin

  3. Hello Rachel and Colin,

    We haven't tried any accommodation in the area but I believe you can give it a shot on Sasca Montana and Sasca Romana are two pretty close villages where you can look after accommodation. Here's one that looks nice from what I've saw:;label=sasca-montana-WXoDCnZLLAjbx7bj3qcb2QS37292081099%3Apl%3Ata%3Ap1%3Ap2%3Aac%3Aap1t1%3Aneg%3Afi%3Atiaud-146342138710%3Akwd-81743659157%3Alp1011845%3Ali%3Adec%3Adm;sid=1527afc00091e992c01b5cdb2e630204
