Hiking Trip to the Spectacular 7 Stairs Canyon

In the mountains near Brasov there is a unique natural attraction in Romania: thousands of years ago the Jurassic limestones here ruptured and collapsed, creating a narrow canyon and 7 beautiful waterfalls inside. Very similar to a gorge but more spectacular, the canyon can be crossed through a series of 9 stairways which will give you a very up-close experience with nature!

Moments to expect in the hiking tour to 7 Ladders Canyon

A spectacular natural attraction!

This stunning gorge, chasm or canyon - whatever you want to call it! is famous for its steep ladders attached to rocks that pass very close to seven tumbling waterfalls that have formed inside ages ago. Besides the fresh and clean air, you will have a very up-close and personal encounter with nature and be able to appreciate its beauty! Crossing the canyon takes about 15-30 min.

A spectacular natural attraction!

The hiking route back home

After reaching the top of the canyon, you can choose between two return routes: the standard 1,5 hour trek or a slightly harder 2-3 hour hiking trail which goes deeper through the forests, meadows and hills of Piatra Mare Massif near Brasov. Either way, it will be beautiful!
