The road typically starts from Sebeș, but an alternative is through Mărginimea Sibiului. Here is Poiana Sibiului at 900m of altitude above the Transylvanian plain.

Thanks to my mother for this wonderful voyage! Without her driving skills and her patience (the round trip takes an astonishing 7 hours) this experience couldn’t have been possible.
