Coume, Cascade de la

Cascade de la Coume is one of the many waterfalls in the river Ruisseau Hourradade not far from the famous Cascade d’Enfer in Vallee de Lys/Bagneres de Luchon in the Pyrenees, France.

From Bagnere de Luchon drive south on the D46 into Vallee du Lys and cascade d’Enfer. At the end of the road there is a parking but it can be very crowded. The walk to cascade d’Enfer is a popular daytrip for tourists and for hiking in the valley.

From the parking follow the signs to cascade d’Enfer, but almost directly at the left side the river Ruisseau Hourradade cascades down the mountain. The first waterfall you will see is cascade du Coeur. Early in the season a very nice waterfall and very photogenic.

Cascade de la Coume is located upstream from  cascade du Coeur and is the last waterfall. In between there are several other waterfalls like Cascade Cau and Cascade de Houradade. Cascade de la Coume is probably a fall that cascades down in 3 stages over appr 70 meters. I think this is Cascade de la Coume.

The hike to Cascade de la Coume will take time and you have to ascend 500 meters over a steep trail.
