Built in 1877 and entirely renovated in 1987, the Durnand Gorges offer a breathtaking spectacle which has earned them a place among the ten most beautiful in Europe.
Located in the commune of Bovernier, the visible part of the Gorges du Durnand is about 1 kilometer long. It is reached by a small bucolic path, lined with blueberries and wild strawberries, which suddenly turns into a course of suspended wooden footbridges and stairs (330 steps in total) offering the visitor magical visions.
Under his feet, the water of the Durnand rolls, bubbles, swirls, bouncing with a succession of 14 waterfalls, each one more impressive than the other. While the foaming river rushes towards the plain, the sky is a thin blue ribbon above the dark cliffs.
Count on about 1 hour for the walk, out and back by a small path through the forest.
