Canionul Șapte Scări, Timisul de Jos

4.7
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.

  • We started our trip at 9:00 AM after we heard that things get crowded next to the ladders and zip-lines as time goes by. It seems to have been the right thing to do as we didn't have any lines at all....  more »

  • 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.
  • About a one hour stroll up to the entrance, the canyon itself is not so long, but does require one to climb up and down ladders. Very nice trip, popular tourist destination, expect the place to be crowded, do not attempt to park close to the entrance: it will be a problem to get there and even worse to get back out.
  • Breathtaking views. A very good place for a little hiking if you want. The terrain is a little bit challenging so be prepared in time. After you climb you can use the ziplines to come back (they cost at around 20 Euros per person) and they are more than 30 in total.
  • Beautiful trail most of which through a shading forest next to a little stream. Suitable for families with small children up to the ladders part. Unsuitable for strollers. Taking the zip lines back down is great fun for +14 years old, however may get crowded in lower platforms. At lower cabin some zip lines are available for +2 years old which our children really enjoyed.
