Cascade du Dard (Chamonix)

Cascate du Dard is a beautiful waterfall south of Chamonix in the region Haute Savoie, France.

From Chamonix it is a short drive south towards the Mont Blanc tunnel on road N205. A few hundred meters before the toll section there is a small parking at the left side of the road with an information board(gps 45.902484, 6.857934). If you take the road to the left (at the information board) you see some blue information signs including one to cascade du Dard. You can drive further to a second and even third parking (gps 45.903241, 6.860575) near a small pedestrian bridge that leads to a restaurant (150 m) “Buvette de la cascade du Dard”.

From the terrace you have a splendid view on cascade du Dard and the mountain range around the Mont Blanc.

It is also possible to walk to the waterfall from the city centre of Chamonix and this is quite a walk ascending over 200 meter. The trailhead lies at Parking Groupon (gps 45.916820, 6.872190).
