The Pisse waterfall in Champsaur

in Champoléon
9.4 km
Round-trip
  • In summer, early in the morning, the Tourond valley is wonderfully cool and fresh.

  • From the parking area, after the bridge, go up the D 472 for a few metres to the crossroads with a contemporary cross (dated 2009), then turn left up along a path that joins up with a little road leading to the village of Les Fermons. After the third bend, turn left along the path running alongside the chapel and gradually make your way up towards the Tourond refuge.

    From the parking area, after the bridge, go up the D 472 for a few metres to the crossroads with a contemporary cross (dated 2009), then turn left up along a path that joins up with a little road leading to the village of Les Fermons. After the third bend, turn left along the path running alongside the chapel and gradually make your way up towards the Tourond refuge. The path looks down on the torrent, then gets closer to it as far as the crossroads with the route going up to Col de Venasque. Turn right into the winding path leading up to the refuge, which you will soon see above you. Below the refuge, turn left into the path that goes around the mountainside and that looks as if it is going to run up against the cliffs at the bottom of the valley. You draw closer to the waterfall, but without going right to the end of the path - for your own safety - then retrace your steps to the Tourond refuge and the start of the hike.
