Don’t be put off by the slightly amateurish and tacky entrance and gift shop this gorge is spectacular and although the walk is uphill it should be achievable by anyone with average fitness. Well made path with sturdy hand rail and well engineered steps ....More

Very nice trail and spectacular scenery. Easy to walk even with kids. Must go up to the end of trail to see and feel the water fall

Beautiful walk up the gorge, along steps and paths, good activity for a cooler or damp day. We visited from Chamonix, easy to get to on the train, get off at servos and then a 15 minute walk, you'll need directions.

Didn't find spectacular at all. Perhaps because we have many beautiful waterfalls at home in Scotland. Some interesting points en route regarding geology and industrial past. Walkways fairly well made, not too slippy even on wet day we visited. Cafe good at entrance, excellent prices...More

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. The walk through the dramatic and sometimes spectacular gorge was super. We went during a period of quite heavy rain but this did not detract from our experience. The torrent of water pounding down the gorge is a wonder to...More
