Gorges de la Restonica (Restonica Gorges) Review

Put on your hiking boots. The Gorges de la Restonica make a spectacular day tour. At the top of the Restonica Valley, leave your car in the parking area at the end of the road. A two-hour climb will take you to Lac de Mélo, a trout-filled mountain lake 6,528 feet above sea level sourcing the gorges. Another hour up is the usually snow-bordered Lac de Capitello. Information on trails is available from the tourist office or the Parc Naturel Régional. Light meals are served in the stone shepherds' huts at the Bergeries de Grotelle. Visitors should be advised of falling rocks in the rugged region.
