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.
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!
