Vallée de Chaudefour

Recommended
The elevated slopes and summits of this valley in the Massif du Sancy are eaten into by ravines (either bare or dotted with rocks) and have been eroded and sculpted into myriad strange shapes. With its numerous peat bogs and rare flora and fauna, this site is of genuine scientific interest. Geology enthusiasts will discover interesting samples of volcanic rocks, while mountaineers are spoilt for choice here.
