Gorges du Verdon

Les Gorges du Verdon (Verdon canyon) more often called Le Verdon are located in the southern Alps, dominated by the small villages of La Palud (el. 1,200 m) and Aiguines, the closest city being Castellane. In the ned of the canyon goes the river Le Verdon which enlarges in an artificial lake at the end of the canyon, Le Lac de Sainte-Croix, closed by a dam.Like in every canyon, there's a left bank/rim (Rive Gauche) and a right one (Rive Droite) : La Palud is on the right/north rim, Aiguines on the left/south rim. The weather can be cold in winter because of the elevation (3600 feet), and can be warm in summer, so choose the right orientation. More, from July to September, there can be storms almost every late afternoon so think about it and don't get stuck on the routes... Last but not least, as it is a canyon, you must usually rap down first, then start tour ascent : be prepared!
