Walks | Porto Vecchio | Corsica
Having admired the idyllic landscape of the Lake of Ospedale, an easy stroll of approximately 1h30min (round trip) is possible, to enjoy this vertiginous waterfall of 60m of height, with its water that strikes pink walls of granite.
From Porto-Vecchio, take the D368 in the direction of the West, towards Zonza. At approximately 7 km after the dam of Ospédale, at approximately 32 km of Porto-Vecchio, you will find a (paying) parking lot where you can park your vehicle.
The path is accessible from the parking lot.
This path crosses a ford, a few hundred meters away from the parking lot, before resulting to a cleared landscape that overhangs the torrent which feeds the waterfall.
To discover the top of the waterfall : no difficulty to reach the points allowing a view from above of the waterfall.
To discover the foot of the waterfall : the bottom of the waterfall has been fitted out and marked out. You can find anchor points in the rock with cables allowing to be held. The descent is stiff, the passage is steep, but if you stay in the marked out part, there is no special difficulty.
On the other hand the lowest part of the path has not been equipped and a panel indicates the end of the protected zone and that from this limit you are liable and take your own risks. This limit crossed, the ground is slippery, wet and thus dangerous.
