Full description
The starting point of your walk is just a short drive away from Brasov. Once you are there, you will head directly to the Seven Ladders Canyon (Canionul Sapte Scari) in the Piatra Mare range, part of the Southern Carpathian Mountains. This stunning gorge is famous for its steep ladders that take you up the rock walls past a series of rushing waterfalls. Upon arrival, you will set off along meadow and forest paths, reaching the canyon after a 45-minute hike. Afterwards, you can opt to rest here or enter the rock chasm with your experienced guide. You can then head inside, where you will 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, you will enjoy thrilling close-up views of the tumbling waters and the towering rock walls around you. Following your trek, you will 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.
