There are lots of very nice corners on this road but the the surface is extremely patchy in places, best ridden early in the morning to avoid all the hazards presented by tourists. Ridden at 8am on a GS racing along with one of the locals in a Skoda was good fun. Sport bikes best avoid this one! The Pass winds very tightly through the dramatic Bicaz gorge, an area of great natural beauty.
It’s a scenery only road, passing beside lake Rosu (Red lake) and the spectacular Bicaz gorges. The road condition is awful with lots of potholes and huge traffic.
