Description

Montmin Canyon, as its nearby Angon canyon, is located on the edge of Annecy Lake, on the road of Col de la Forclaz, 30 minutes away from Annecy and 1 hour form Chambéry. It’s one of the must-do canyons around Annecy.

The Nant de Montmin, get its water from La Tournette Mountain. Their river is alway needed, never dry, temp is fresh, it’s well done to have a cool half-day in summer day. The appointment is located on a parking lot specially set for the “canyoners” with dry bathrooms and changing room.

After have put on our wet suit, a short car-shuttle runs to reach the top of the Canyon. A steep approach walk in the forest with a handrail rope, allows to get to start of the Mountain Canyon route.

The course begins with many playful, easy obstacles over 600 feet long. Most obstacles are cleared by jumping or sliding.

We will meet a lot of small jumps, from 3 to 4 meters high where it will be better to listen to the Guide who gives the appropriate instructions to cross the passage. Near the end, for those who wish, there is a 22 foot high technical jump. The starting push is crucial to get it right!

There are a lot of waterslides along the the route, all are playful and the only danger is to get wet!! This waterslides sculpted by the water flow give very unique slides. For example, you’ll get a good memory of the “electable waterslide”, 23+ ft long!! Not forgetting the 2 abseiling no higher that 33 ft.

The return walk is about 20 minutes long to get back to the parking lot.

So, Montmin is a playful canyon, where the rope is only little used. To add to this sporting day; it’s possible to go to Angon Performance Canyon with a 115 ft high rappel down.
