    A very nice walk, the vegetation is breathtaking. Beware, it's slippery, and despite the equipment my friend got dizzy. Looking at the pictures of other visitors I had the impression that bridges across the throat but they are in fact along the wall. The signage of the place to turn is really not clear enough (no continuous barrier to close the trail and markup) so we continued a little because we had not paid attention, then we turned back because it was far too dangerous. Until the abyss, I think that the walk is ok with children from 10 years of dry weather, and if they are not too dissipated. Count 1 h 30 to 2 h max really taking your time for the round trip. We walked between 12: 00 and 14: 00 but it's entirely in the shade and very fresh so no problem on this side here. In the month of July we met only 2 other couples. The water is ice, don't expect bathe you, unlike the cascades of Hedgehog or the 4 lakes. We did the waterfall of the Valley which is 500 m from the parking lot across the road.

    Nice discovery! Impressive vegetation. And just below, Cascade Combes not far from the road, too: a small refreshing mist summer!

    These are beautiful gorges that allow to do a walk on foot although not too technical. The information distilled on the course with posters to understand the flow of the waters. There are other rivers and waterfalls in the area that are much more impressive, but these are to integrate in your career if you're in the area.
