Piscia di Gallu, Zonza

(4.1/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
One of the most beautiful waterfalls in Corsica, Piscia di Gallu is quite spectacular at a height of 60 m (196 ft). You can descend the trail fully equipped with handrails, or you can adventure on the old tourist trail along the cascades down to the plateau overlooking the creek. There is a good swimming spot in the pool right at the throat of the river where the waterway narrows. Less than a mile from the Ospédale Dam, the trail crosses a ford where you can cross the river on foot, before it flows into the open landscape overlooking the river that feeds the falls.

  • After 1 h to 1 h 30 walk (with good shoes, a hat and water because there is very little shade), you have access to a level that offers a panoramic view of the waterfall at its highest point. If you're brave a via ferrata is fitted down (100 m in altitude), safe. Accessible since climbing my 8 year old daughter did with me in trouble. No sports, refrain from going down: the return is physical! The view is very beautiful from above. But if feel you like, go down to admire from downstairs, the noise it does is spectacular. And more sparse tourist place, it is necessarily more enjoyable. I advise you to do this tour in the morning early (plan change for the parking), to be home in time for lunch. And you can definitely lunch at the brewery, which the staircase terraces offer a panorama of this great Valley: correct service, simple but efficient kitchen and a correct value for a tourist area. Essential release!

  • After leaving your car to the refuge of Cartalavonu take the marked trail that starts almost in front of the House. The climb is pretty daunting but what a pleasure once arrived on the plateau. An exceptional view of the Gulf of Porto-Vecchio and weather clear Bonifacio the Lavezzi Islands, and even Sardinia with the island of the Tavolara.De the other côté('nord) all of the alta rocca with inside the highest peak of the region the Incudine and the forks of Bavella.Profitez in to pick up a bit of thyme and discover the ' trees and shrubs of the maquis (Heath (, Arbutus, pine lariccio and maritime, Holly, Asphodel, dwarf juniper...) Also notice the boulders of granite shaped by erosion. Attention be careful with young children especially for the back and don't forget the water in sufficient quantity. Arrival at Cartalavonu must stop at François Marie for a good break crust.

  • An hour and a half walk, difficult and easy at the beginning on the end, provide good shoes. But the site is fantastic. More swimming on the back into the Gorge gives forces to return. Fantastic.
