The Seven Ladders Canyon

The Seven Ladders Canyon is a mountainous canyon carved by the Șapte Scări Brook in Romania in the county of Brașov, south of Timișu de Jos 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.

It is at an altitude of 1100-1200 meters and 160 meters long and start looking for the yellow tape from the former Dambu Morii chalet. The route is by no means one that will require superpowers but is a route of 1 hour, easy, accessible at any time of the year.

To get to this canyon you must first arrive in the area named “Dambu Morii” which is located near the small town of Timisul de Jos (you can find it on GPS – Timisul de Jos, Brasov, Romania). If you travel by car you must go on the road from Bucharest to Brasov City. At about 17 kilometers from Brasov, in the area of a resort named Dambu Morii (you can also find in on GPS – Camping Dambu Morii, Sacele, Brasov) you must notice a small road on the right (right – if you come from Bucharest, left – if you come from Brasov). You make the turn on that road. You can either park at the entrance or you can park a little bit further,  closer to the point where your trip to the 7 Stairs Canyon begins. There is a parking lot there, with no taxes included. There are three important landmarks on this road to the Piatra Mare mount.
