The Seven Ladders Canyon (Romanian: Canionul Șapte Scări) is a mountainous canyon carved by the Șapte Scări Brook in Romania in the county of Brașov, south of Dâmbul Morii village. It is considered to be one of the main tourist attractions from the Piatra Mare massif.
The canyon has been carved in Jurassic limestone and is composed by seven waterfalls, the tallest being 35 metres (115 ft) high. The trail within the canyon is arranged with metal stairs and platforms.
7 stairs Canyon, or the "subdivision" of Piatra Mare Mountain miracles, is composed of exactly 7 slope bits illustrating the 7 waterfalls that give the name of the canyon. The 7 steps pass with heights between 2.5 meters and 15 meters turn into cascades when the water volume of the river Seven Stairs increases.

  • Must visit if you like mountains and adventure! We visited with a 4 y/o and 7 y/o kids and it took about 3 hours. At the end, while going back, the our little kid complained and had to be carried a little bit but it was manageable. So, if you're in the area and especially if you have kids and proper boots or even good sport shoes, you definitely will enjoy it!
  • What a amazing experiences. You have to be prepared with lots of energy and proper dressing, including the shoes. Don't even think you are coming with the flip flops. One more thing, make sure you make room to your flash drive / phone memory - you will be taking lots of great footage.
