Lillaz - Valeille valley

Summer path

Simple loop hike that allows you to enter in the wide valley of Valeille, dominated by glaciers. Through a beautiful forest of larches and spruces, populated by numerous songbirds and squirrels, you reach a balcony facing the beautiful waterfall of Lillaz: here we recommend you to follow the various waterfalls along the path, sometimes steep, that enter back in Lillaz near the hydroelectric station.

Not to be missed:

- characteristic architecure of Lillaz village
- geologic park of Lillaz
- roche moutonnée and rocks potholes 
- the big and impressive glacial erratic
- Paleo-landslide of Gran Clapey
- camois and marmots in the Valeille detrital cones 
- apple tree along the path over the highest waterfall
