The TRANSFAGARASAN (DN7C) highway pass through Fagaras Mountains and links Muntenia to Transilvania.

One of the most beautiful regions in Romania is that zone, of Fagaras Mountains. It is located in the south of the Medias city, at a distance of aproximately 80 km, and is visible, in some days, right from Medias.

In Fagaras Mountains are many summits over 2000 m altitude, numerous waterfalls and gacial lakes.

In that zone can be founded Balea and Arpasel natural reservations, both protected by law, as a consequence of flora diversity and of the existence of rare species that can be seen here.

The TRANSFAGARASAN starts from Arefu village, in Arges County, at the 61 km of national road DN7C and ends in the Cartisoara village, in Sibiu County, when the road is crossing DN1 national road.

Before reaching Balea Lake, the road traverses the longest tunnel in Romania (887 m), the Balea Tunnel that goes through the mountain at ovet 2000 m height.
Just one lane of 6 meters width and a sidewalk of 1 meter exist in the tunnel. The tunnel is not artificialy lighted.

From the end of October to the beginning of June, the road is closed for the traffic because of the snow that covers it.
