Canyons de Haute-Savoie

Authors: Charletty / Gudefin / Hugon - CDS 74-2004 - French

Haute-Savoie is the land of the mountains, most known of the Mont-Blanc. Haute-Savoie is also the land of the caving with two of the deepest caves in the world (the Gouffre Jean Bernard -1602 m below Folly massif and the Gouffre Mirolda -1733 m below Criou Massif in Samoens). But the Haute Savoie is also the land of the canyons.

The relatively high altitude offers grandiose and varied landscapes, while glaciaire nutrition basins throughout the year provide cold water but also an interesting flow. Custom neoprene clothing is recommended.

This guidebook describes 40 canyons, ranging from simple walks through and around water to alpine canyons with a big commitment.

This book contains 40 topographic sheets of several canyons from simple strolls to alpine canyons with a high commitment in calcaire pre-Alps of Haut Giffre, Bornes, and Chablais, in the gneiss-canyons of Aiguilles Rouges, or granite canyons of the Mont-Blanc.

One of the jewels of the canyons of the Alpes du Nord is the Diosaz (nowadays access to these canyons is prohibited by municipal decree). Or Rock canyon, a real water play track with surprising edges.

We hope you will enjoy this book, even more, that you are going through the same great time when we when we visited these canyons.
