Ecouges Canyon lower part

Description Ecouges canyon part 2

The Lower part of Ecouges also calls "Part 2 of Ecouges" or "Ecouges 2", which is a perfect sport discovery site in the Vercors massif. 1 hour from Lyon and 30 minutes from Grenoble and Valence, this is a complete descent course where you will find several beautiful abseils (28m max) and many jumps(not mandatory) and slides.

It’s a big half-day activity (4.5 hours) in a remarkably sculpted canyon with superb waterfalls and pools which is ideal for doing jumps and slides.

For those who have more courageous, it is possible to start from the upper part of Ecouges to achieve the integral of Ecouges

Different versions of the lower part of Ecouges are possible.

  • start with crossing the 2 large waterfalls, the highest of which is almost 28m, after finishing the obstacle of Diaclase.

  • for those who want to skip the abseil part and prefer doing a longer aquatic part, we can also bypass the first 2 waterfalls and finish with a 10m jump (not mandatory) in the "gourd bottom".

  • Finally, for more sportive, we will do the complete one from the 2 waterfalls until the jump of 10m in the "gourd bottom".

It will also be possible to chain up with the Versoud canyon, the 2 canyons are complementary and very close.
