Jonte Gorge

Recommended
Downstream from Meyrueis, the River Jonte flows through a canyon, whose sheer limestone flanks have been hewn by erosion. A bit further along, the canyon becomes narrower and in summer the river completely dries up. Approaching the hamlet of Douzes, the river emerges from its long underwater journey in a second, deep canyon. Before reaching Rozier, where the Tarn and the Jonte converge, pause at the Maison des Vautours (vulture viewpoint) for a matchless sight of the raptors reintroduced in the 1970s.
