New companions on the Transalpina
For the touring motor enthusiasts the Transalpina rates highly
Its a long pass that’s what makes it so special.
148km of curves over the Carpathian Mountains
With beautiful lakes
The top of the road is more like a long ridge across the top of the Carpathian Mountains than a pass
From the southern end of the Transalpina it’s not too far to the Danube and the Bulgarian border
And encounters with well pravelled riders
Follow the river west and there is a gem
The Iron Gates of the Danube road which is cut into the cliffs along the Danube
The start of the Iron Gates are marked by this ancient Statue
The road then runs for about 100km mostly cliff face with some beaches
Until the you reach the point where the strict girdle of the mounts stop and the mighty river opens out again.
Two very special rides!
