Cascade Dietrich

Cascade Dietrich is a nice waterfall near Casteil (Vernet les Bains) in the French Pyrenees.

From Perpignan drive to Prades (N116) and turn left to Vernet les Bains on road D27. In Vernet turn left to Casteil (D116). In Casteil there are small signs for Cascade Dietrich/Ravin de la Guilla. The parking is just for teh camping site (gps 42.533387, 2.396666).

From the parking it is a short and easy walk through a beautiful surrounding. Follow the small white sign onto a path that runs around the camping. The walk is easy and takes appr 10 minutes (700 meters).

When we were visiting cascade Dietrich in July (many years ago) there was hardly any water in the river, but still it was a nice place to visit. Beside the waterfall wildlife can be spotted: when I was walking around the corner I almost walked onto a very big bird of prey. But he didn’t seem to have problems with my visit. It was sitting on a branch on eye level.

Probably Cascade Dietrich is higher then I expected at the time because the waterfall has three stages with a total descend of appr. 50 meters.
