    Stairs between two rocks

    Hello,

    How would an English speaker call the thing on the picture below? A rock passage? Or simply a passage?

    Thank you very much.

    A flight of stone steps. Or stair steps made of stone.

    To answer your original question, you could call it a path or a ​passage.

    It's a flight of concrete steps then. And yes, you. can call it a path or a passage.

    Thanks. I think a passage does the trick perfectly.

    Note that your original question should have been "What would an English speaker call ...?", not "How would ...?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Stairs are steps which connect the different levels within a building. Steps outdoor, which are part of walkways or passages are just called steps and not stairs.
