Cascade du Saillant

Cascade du Saillant is a truly wonderful waterfall at the little hamlet Saillant (east of Marcenat) in the region of Auvergne/Cantal, France. Strangely enough it an unofficial named waterfall.

From Marcenat take road D36 to the east towards Ardes sur Couze. At Le Saillant go right, there is small signs “cascades”. Drive along the houses until you cross a small river. Park the car here.

Here the river Bonjon drops down with a great force over 30 meters. Cascade du Saillant is easy to reach from the roadside at and can be seen from different angles.

It is also possible to get behind the waterfall, not an official walk/trail but a nice thing to do: be careful.
