Cascade du Sailhant

(Cascade de Barbory, Cascade de Babory)

Cascade de Sailhant or Cascade de Barbory (sometimes written without the r: Babory) is one of those beauties you seldom see. Not because of the height but because of the scenery. The waterfall is located south of Clermont Ferrand, at Sailhant, in the region Auvergne/Cantal, France.

From Clermont Ferrand drive south to Saint Flour (A77). There take road D40 to Andelat and Le Sailhant. From the center of the village (gps 45.067665, 3.041364) a trail leads to the base of the waterfall. It is a short walk, 5-10 minutes.

Cascade de Sailhant is named after the castle: chateau du Sailhant. Cascade de Sailhant (Cascade de Barbory) drops down over 30 meters with a basalt rock wall at the background. The scenery is perfect but the waterflow in the river is minimal. After rainfall it should be more impressive. Nevertheless, a waterfall that is a visit worthwhile.
