Cascade de Syratus

Cascade de Syratus is a set of waterfalls near each other in an unnamed river. Cascade de Syratus is located one kilometer east of the village Mouthier-Haute-Pierre (north of Pontarlier) in the region Franche Comte/Doubs, France.

Cascade de Syratus is easy to reach and can be visited when having holiday near Pontarlier or Besançon. Drive to Mouthier-Haute-Pierre on road D67. A little west of the village take the exit (gps 47.039492, 6.271057) to a small road. Follow the road towards the river but don’t cross it. Follow the river until teh road ends. There is no official parking. From here it is a short walk (400 meter) to cascade de Syratus.

The lower part of Cascade de Syratus is appr. 15-25 meters high and is almost a copy of Cascade des Tufs (Also in the Jura region). The lower part of Cascade de Syratus is covered with moss and looks almost surrealistic. I think the lower part can be visited from the roadside at the river Loue.

The middle part of Cascade de Syratus is more spectacular with a single drop of 35 meters and is located along road d67. There is a small parking along road d67 from where you should see the middle part of the waterfall.

There is also an upper part of Cascade de Syratus, but probably you can only see this part from a distance.
