Dailley Gorge

There is a hiking trail that begins in the village of Salvan, passing through larch forests and entering the Dailley Gorge near Van d'en Bas. The trail leading through the gorge was completely renovated in 1995: the gangways, galleries and stairs lead across some vertigo-inducing heights. The Salanfe River has been diverted in order to provide electricity for thousands of homes. Nevertheless, the upper reaches of this river are still breathtaking: the Salanfe crashes through the narrow gorge and you can glimpse the distant snow-clad peaks on the horizon towering high above the Rhone Valley. A real treat for incurable romantics!
