The Seven Ladders Canyon located in Piatra Mare Mountain (Big Rock Mountain) is probably the most well known canyon in Romania. The 7 ladders (actually there are 9 of them) take you upstream beside breathtaking waterfalls, so even if you are afraid of height, you can enjoy the view. The highest waterfall is about 15 meters high having a ladder placed so close to it, which means that you sometimes risk getting a bit wet while climbing the rungs. The best season to visit the Canyon doubtless is autumn, when the nature turns into a colorful painting.
