At the start of the 230 ft high abseiling down, Écouges upper part


The upper part of the Écouges Canyon, also known as Écouges 1, is the most challenging and breathtaking canyon route in the Vercors Massif, located not far from Grenoble, Lyon, and Valence.

Reserved for experienced individuals, the upstream section is an absolute must-do. This exceptional collection offers a magnificent series of abseiling sections, creating an unforgettable journey!

Before embarking on a canyon descent, we strongly recommend that you familiarize yourself with abseiling techniques in an easier canyon, such as the Alloix Canyon.

Once you have successfully tackled the final 230 ft high waterfall, you will have the opportunity to continue to Part 2 of the Écouges Canyon, allowing you to complete the Écouges Intégral!
