The Oursière waterfall, the natural power of water.
The Oursière waterfall is very impressive with its 80 metres height.
Once very popular for curists at the beginning of the 19th century, the successive waterfalls make it the most refreshing place in the area. Between shady laces and vertiginous streams, this place of healing is ideal in hot weather.
The ruins of the former Oursière chalet-hotel are still visible just before arriving at the 80m high final waterfall.

Accessible on foot, hiking or running, from the road D 111 that leads to Chamrousse. You can stop at the parking area located after the Seiglières hostel (or from the place called "la Gafe").
