Vallée du Trient

Lake of the Salanfe dam in the Valley of Trient.
The Vallée du Trient connects Martigny in Lower Valais via the border town of Le Châtelard with the famous French resort of Chamonix at the foot of Mont Blanc. The valley is an unspoiled natural paradise with wild gorges, grottos and one of the most beautiful glaciers in the Alps. A first highlight awaits at the entrance to the valley, a 200-metre deep gorge near Vernayaz, carved into the rock by the Trient torrent. The impressive 114-metre-high Pissevache waterfall near Vernayaz is well worth a detour. In 1779, Goethe wrote: "At last we came before the waterfall that deserves its fame above many others.
