Trip Planner: Africa / St Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha / St Helena Island / Jamestown / Jacob's Ladder
One of the seven wonders of St. Helena, Jacob's Ladder connects the valley grounds to a fort on top of the hill. With a total of 699 steps, the steep stairway clambers up a rocky slope, with dizzying views of the sea and island. Once a mere rope ladder, today the repaired stairs each measure approximately 30 cm (11 inches) high and deep. Lighting at night makes it possible to climb at any time. Make Jacob's Ladder a part of your Jamestown vacation plans using our Jamestown attractions website.
