“Nature at its best”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

Les Gorges de la Diosaz has a lot to compete with being amongst the giant attractions in the Chamonix - Mont Blanc region. The walk up the gorge is best done in July/August when the waterflow is at its greatest and the cascades are at their most spectacular. The route is along natural paths, wooden walkways and bridges that cross and recross the gorge. The total ascent is approx 1.5 km with a 130m height gain; when you reach the end you turn round and retrace your steps There are information boards along the way telling you about plant / animal life; geological features; history of the area and other interesting facts. The entrance fee when I visited was 5.50 euros per adult. There is a small souvenir shop and cafe. This attraction is signposted from the main road and is not hard to find. I recommend a visit.

“A Good Walk”
Reviewed 6 August 2013 via mobile

An interesting and safe gorge walk over bridges and on cliff hugging paths over deep drops. Good water flow in August and some pretty decent waterfalls. Walk climbs to a fixed point and return the same way. Plenty of places to sit and lovely forests. Entrance fee is 5 euros for adults. Gift shop, cafe and toilets at entrance. Plenty of parking. Worth a visit.
