Waterfall close to the entrance of the Mont-Blanc tunnel. In the heart of the forest, this is the last in a series of waterfalls whose turbulent, sparkling waters are a truly natural marvel.

From the Grepon car park in Chamonix, take the "chemin à Batioret"which runs beside the Route Blanche. Cross over the torrent by a bridge and walk up to les Molliasses. Pass the forest track on your left. Turn right up to the road leading to the tunnel. Follow it for about 50 metres, then turn left to take a shortcut. Continue along the route that climbs up throught the trees, avoiding the path from les Pelerins to your right. Then, cross the footbridge over the Dard which will then bring you to the Chalet.
Way back : 30 minutes.

Others itineraries are available from Les Pélerins or on the road to Tunnel du Mont-Blanc.
