The county is one of plateau and mountain. About a quarter (24%) of the county's surface is mountainous, occupied by the Apuseni Mountains, with heights of up to 1,800 meters, located in the southwestern part of the county. The rest of the surface is formed in proportion of 76% of the hills and valleys of the Someșan Plateau and the Transylvanian Plain. The terraces and meadows in the lower sectors of Someș Mic and Arieș make up for the lack of plains.
