Seven Stairs Canyon – one day hike


The 7 Stairs Canyon  is a breathtaking attraction in Romania located 150 km faraway from Bucharest, on Prahova Valley, near the medieval town of Brasov. The trip to the 7 Stairs Canyon can be done in one day and it’s a remarkable experience for the motivated walker. The stairs are very close to the waterfalls so, on hot days, the cool spray from the falls eases the climb. While we are in the Piatra Mare Mountains we will continue hiking through deep forest until the Piatra Mare Hut (1628 m) where will take our lunch and a well deserved rest. On our return, we will have a choice of either one of two trails – the Bear Gap trail or   the Familiar Road trail – depending on the judgement of the guide.

Climbing the  7 Stairs Canyon will make your day !

TOUR Description

Depart from Bucharest early in the morning, having the meeting point in the front of the North Train Station. After around 3 hours of a local train journey through Prahova Valley we’ll arrive in Timisu de Jos village. From here we’ll walk 20-30 minute on the main national road until the Dambu Morii Village. At the beginning  our trail will be an easy one, until the 7 Stairs Canyon, which could be difficult for those with altitude sickness, but not impossible. There is also an alternative detour for those who don’t feel able to pass through the canyon.  The rest of the trail until Piatra Mare Hut,  will become gradually  more demanding. After a lunch break at Piatra Mare ( the lunch is not included in the tour), we will returned on the easiest route on Piatra Mare Mountains known as “Familiar Roud”.
