Gorges & Causses

Tarn and Jonte Gorges - Sauveterre and Méjean Causses

Located in the south-west Lozère, the Tarn and Jonte Gorges, are dominated by the Causse de Sauveterre, the Causse Mejean and the Causse Noir.

The region is characterised by large expanses of limestone, the Causses, the average altitude of which is around 900 metres, with steep, jagged defiles and escarpments. The Gorges.

Among some especially lovely sites to visit are the beautiful villages of Hauterives, Sainte-Enimie, St-Chely-du-Tarn, and La Malène

A descent of the Gorges by canoe or with the rafters of Malène...

Visit the caves of Aven Armand and Dargilan, the old working farm, Utopix or the nearby rock chaos of Nîmes le Vieux and Montpellier le vieux.

There are some breathtaking panoramas at Roc des Hourtous or Point Sublime which has a 360° view...

Watch vultures in flight and in their nests from the viewpoint... and, if you're lucky, you may see the last Przewalski's horses.

Hiking on foot or mountain bike or on horseback over the many trails and marked paths.

The Causses and Gorges have some of the most spectacular and internationally recognised scenery in France.
