What You Can Expect

Day Trip to the Epic 7 Ladders Canyon from Brasov.
We start the tour from Brasov (we pick you up from your location), head to the Seven Ladders Canyon (Canionul Sapte Scari) - an interesting karstic phenomenon - in the Piatra Mare range, part of the Southern Carpathian Mountains. Once there was a cave here, whose roof collapsed to show the steep and close walls of the canyon. This stunning gorge is famed for its steep ladders that take you up the rock walls past a series of rushing waterfalls. On arrival, set off along meadow and forest paths, reaching the canyon after a 45-minute hike. Then, opt to rest here or enter the rock chasm with your experienced guide. Head inside, and spend the next 15 minutes or so crossing the bridges and climbing each of the near-vertical metal ladders that make up the gorge. As you go, enjoy thrilling close-up views of the tumbling waters and the towering rock walls around you. After your trek, rejoin your group and choose between a 1.5-hour return route or a harder 2 to 3 hour trail, walking back through forests and glades to your vehicle. After your hike, your tour ends back at your Brașov hotel.

Great guide, scenic not strenuous, close to Brasov

While the walk was very nice — and since we went at 9 on a Tuesday, no other people — the best part was the history and information from our guide, Zsolt Bara. Local history as well as being able to provide hiking/wilderness informations, and information on other regions of Romania. Since both I and the other tour member were Austrian/German we learned some cool things about the German influence since the days of the empire. Also no one was eaten by bears, so very good! (Joke of course) This is especially good for someone who has not been in Romanian hiking before/wants a more involved trip out. Because you can hike anywhere in the world, but you can only get this kind of experience with local informations. Also nothing to be afraid of, these ladders, as long as you don’t have phobia of climbing.
