We were initially going to do the shortest loop, but when we got to the fork at the bridge pretty quickly, the young-uns decided to go further. We therefore continued up the left side of the valley. It was a lot tougher than we thought,...More

Fantastic walk along both sides of a deep gorge. Some steep sections and lots of cliff edges and amazing views. Little Yellow Train station Thués-Entre-Valls is at the entrance to the gorge.

My wife, 6 year old, and I enjoyed this 3 hour walk a lot. Our son said it was one of the two best he's been on (the other being the Beehive on Mt. Desert Island in Maine, USA). Bridges and tunnels were great. The...More

Poorly marked trail. Do not start with the left hand path. Go up the right hand switchback until you reach a plateau, then turn left. This is the main path with the handrail for safety. After about an hour you will come to a monkey...More
