I have about this road being paved, or rather: I might be biased but I don't think it's a good idea.

Yes, from my point of view I would prefer this road staying like in the 70's, when Miloslav Nevrly described it as ancient middle-aged dusty road without any signs of heavy traffic.

Did you hitchhike along this road?

No hitchiking - I ascended to Urdele Pass and there was a car that transported me to Novaci village going through Ranca tourist resort with a lot of new pensions.

Same story as here, this one is also asphalted now, which I'm not too happy about. Great photo though!

I haven't been on the Sedlo route now but I bet the Trans-Parang will look much worse after 4 years, unless it will be demolished by the elements :(
