  • Access is easy, even if the parking is paid (€4). There is an easy walk between 8 and 11km in this great Valley, nothing but the view at the end of the parking lot is bluffing. The path makes a loop (on 2 sides of the small stream) on safe paths. We just push a little more until the end of the world but it climbs well! We were there end of August but nevertheless we were able to enjoy a few waterfalls that line the Valley, it's well refreshed!

  • This site is unimaginable, of exceptional beauty. The mountains dominate you on all sides while leaving very many waterfalls race down its flanks. Some emerge directly from the wall, in a fabulous show. The ride to go at the end of the world is a 1 h 30 - 2 h 00, where only the final elevation of 300 m is more difficult to achieve while the approach is practically flat easy. But for the tired, without going all the way, their eyes will shine despite everything in front of so much beauty. In good weather, it's a hike from 3:00 to do at all costs. Speaking of price, only € 4 for the car parking is paid.
