Why

This is perhaps one of the most beautiful places I’ve visited and one of the scariest things I’ve done in ages. I really stepped out of my comfort zone on this one. If you like the outdoors, waterfalls, hiking and mountains and have a sense of adventure, then this one is for you.

Hire A Local

You cannot and should not do this adventure without a Guide and I highly recommend Cosmin who was booked through JayWay Boutique Travel. This young man is the Romanian version of Bear Grylls. He’s pretty amazing and a very simple guy, but he’s a mountain man.

Where To Stay

There are no hotels in the mountains, so you can camp out or stay in nearby Brasov. I stayed at Hotel Casa Wagner right on the Main Square in Brasov.

 

Where To Eat

There are no facilities to eat while on this hike. You can bring your own meal of course and have a picnic. There may be bears in the woods, so try not to leave food lying around. Our Guide, actually unknown to us brought food in his backpack and even hiked with it.

What To Do

Hike the 7 Ladders with a qualified Guide. Take rain gear with you as you will be hiking through a rain forest and it may rain. if it rains, you will get soaked! As chances are you will be in the middle of the mountains when it rains. Take good comfortable shoes with you that you don’t mind getting wet as you will cross some streams and you may slip and fall in. Also, the terrain is pretty steep in parts so just be cognizant of that.

The cost is 10 LEI for adults and 5 for children and students with an ID card. There are also ZIP lines in the area that will cost 50 LEI.
