The Vallon de Réchy is a completely preserved nature reserve, full of astonishing natural riches: waterfalls, meanders, lake, varied flora and fauna, stunningly beautiful landscapes, ... The Vallon de Réchy is preserved from civilization. With no roads or buildings, it offers vast possibilities for hiking and is defined as a haven of peace.
The Vallon de Réchy is divided into 3 different levels:
The Bas-Vallon: after throwing itself from an impressive waterfall, the river Rèche flows between forests, clearings and mayens.
Le Vallon-Moyen: a barrier of rock stands out across the valley. Once through this natural gate, the trees give way to vast plateaux covered with moorland. Alpine meadows follow one another in the heart of the Ar du Tsan.
The Haut-Vallon: the upper part of the valley shelters the Lac du Louché. This part also acts as a water tower which keeps drinking water in reserve for the inhabitants of the region.
Arrived at the Crêt-du-Midi, follow the ridge in front of the exit of the cable car then take the path towards the Ar du Tsan, once you have passed the barrier of the reserve of the Vallon de Réchy continue on the road along the meanders on the left. Then follow the signs to the Lac du Louché. Go down the other side to reach the Pichioc waterfall. Return to the Crêt-du-Midi by the same road you took to arrive at the Ar du Tsan.
