North of the Chartreuse is a large manifold - Chailles. A sporty, committed descent of extraordinary beauty!

Chailles is an aquatic canyon. The flow is around 1200 l/s. The canyon is sculpted and the water has carved out its own path. Several siphons can be seen. This is a gorge that will blow your mind. Few guides offer it, so it's far from the crowds.

This canyon consists of 2 parts. A first part with vertical obstacles, most of which can be jumped. There are then jumps that vary between 4 and 10m. The jumps take you through deep gorges to a natural arch. The famous "skylight" gives us access to a handrail so we can climb a little and abseil 25m. The second part is mainly swimming, with a 400m reach that we swim across to reach the exit and return to the car.

This descent is grandiose, and really a MUST in the area. Nevertheless, it is reserved for sporty participants who are comfortable in the water.
