This is a must do hike in the area. It allows you to go to the Grande Cascade du Mont-Dore, the largest waterfall in Auvergne, from the Grands Thermes du Mont-Dore. This path crosses the undergrowth and offers you a lot of freshness. The drop can be difficult but the highest waterfall in Auvergne is worth it.Show more

Totally amazing hike. Surely one of the courses which will offer you the most beautiful landscapes of Auvergne. The climb is steep and can be complicated at times with steep and impractical trails but the multiple rewards are well worth it. The descent through the Val de Courre will offer you fantastic landscapes.
