Via Ferrata de la cascade de Bérard


18 Rte du Montet
74660 Vallorcine

How do I get there?


Starting from the hamlet of Le Buet, the new via ferrata of the Bérard waterfall meanders on either side of the gorge of the Bérard torrent in a fresh and invigorating atmosphere.

The site of the Bérard waterfall is about 600 m west of the hamlet of Buet in Vallorcine at an average altitude of 1400 m.

The route consists of a series of Tibetan bridges, a wooden footbridge, a beam, monkey bridges, interspersed with climbs on bars, crossings on handrails and pedals until exiting on the right bank of waterfall fall.

A loophole is found after the wooden footbridge on the right bank and brings you back to the access route.

After this sporting adventure, consider crossing the footbridge that leads to the refreshment bar to go refresh yourself or have something to eat and discover the cultural aspect of the site by visiting the Grotte à Farinet.
