Vladeasa Massif, is situated in the northrn part of the Apuseni Mountains, having extensive altitude plateaus and a geomorphic structure of vulcanic rocks. The sides of the mountains descend northwards and the massif is split into two distinct parts by the Dragan river. The eastern part is the most important for tourism; it is confined in the North by the Crisul Repede river, in the West by the Dragan river, in the East by the Hent river and by the Cris -Somes watershed; this area has the appearance of a volcanic plateau. The Vladeasa Massif is mostly appreciated by a great number of tourists due to its hiking itineraries which lead in all directions.
