Montmin canyon

Description

The Montmin Canyon is the neighbor of Angon, which is located in the foot of Annecy Lake, on the road to mountain pass of Forclaz, 30 minutes from Annecy and 1 hour from Chambery. It is one of the inevitable canyons in the Annecy region.

Montmin of Nant gathers the water of the Tournette massif. It is a river always fill with water, which is never in drought, the temperature is fresh there, it is perfect to spend a beautiful half day of summer. The parking on reservation basis is specially designed for those who practice canyoning with dry toilets and cloakroom.

After putting on the wetsuit, we organise a short car shuttle to access the departure of the canyon. Followed by a fast and steep walk in the forest with using the equipment, we will reach the Montmin Canyon.

Then we begin to descend in the Canyon, where is punctuated by many playful obstacles for more than 1 km, and you need a little technique to cross, while we can cross most of them by jumping and sliding.

In addition, we will have many jumps of 3, 4 meters, it is necessary to listen the advice and instructions of the instructor each time. In the end, there will be an impressive and technical jump of 7 meters, which is up to your own wish that to finish it with an acrobatic performance.

There are many slides punctuate the course, it is all fun whereas the only risk is to get wet. These limestone slides are naturally carved in by the water erosion, forming unique slides. For example, you will remember for a long time the ejection slide of more than 7 meters! Not to mention the two rappels that do not exceed 10 meters.

To return, it takes 20 minutes to walk back to the car park.

Montmin is a fun canyon, where rope is rarely used. To complete this sporty day, it is possible to do the canyon of Angon performance with its abseil of 35 meters!
