Gour de la Rande - Bois du Clapay

Shady stroll in the Clapay woods

Cultural, Guided tour, Geology in Chavannes-sur-Suran
  • Here's a magical, cool spot for summer. The Bois du Clapay is an ideal setting for learning about the local geology. Please book in advance.

At high water, the Rande stream appears and feeds a gour (cave-in). Here is the entrance to a small cave, there a lapiaz... a limestone bed sculpted by erosion. The ambient humidity favors the growth of mosses, which create a distinctive decor. It's an invaluable natural site for understanding our karstic relief and soothing yourself with a cool summer bath. ...
