GPS Coordinates:
46,44140 N, 22,68671 E

Cucurbăta or Bihorul Mare with the height of 1849 m is the highest peak in the Apuseni Mountains. In clear weather reaching the peak is no problem, because it drives us the ridge. In fog or when the skyscraper is lowered, which is often the case, the only solution remains compass and map orientation. From the top the panorama is superb.
