Water Body
Lac de Derborence is a mountain lake in the municipality of Conthey, Valais, Switzerland, located near the hamlet of Derborence. It was formed after rockfalls on 24 September 1714 and 23 June 1749. In 1749, an estimated 50 million m3 of rocks blocked the course of the Derbonne river and led to the formation of the lake.

  • Remote alpine lake with fantastic colours in autumn. Numerous hiking opportunities around. Natural park with no ski lift etc.  more »
  • Discover this lovely little wild Lake in the heart of the natural reserve of Derborence hidden at the bottom of the Lizerne Valley. Access by road on the side of a cliff with spectacular passages. The place is peaceful and preserved, at the start of many walking routes in the mountain.
