Cascade Mystérieuse

La cascade Mystérieuse is a rare waterfall with beautiful shapes in the rocks surrounding the waterfall. When there is enough water in the river Chinaillon, cascade Mystérieuse can become one of my favorite waterfalls in the Haute-Savoie, France.

La cascade Mystérieuse is located near Chinaillon (le Grand-Bornand), just a 45 minute drive from Annecy. You can park your car at the beginning of Route d’Abelay (gps 45.966577, 6.445789). From here it is a 12-15 minute walk to a viewpoint on cascade Mystérieuse. It is also possible to park one or two cars very close to the waterfall at gps 45.963876, 6.441282.

There is little information to be found about the waterfall, so I have to check it out next time I am in the neighborhood.
