The Thaurac Via Ferrata is a beautiful and varied route through the cliffs of the Thaurac and above the Hérault river with views of the Pic Saint-Loup and Mont Aigoual. We offer you a half day trail starting with the crossing of the Waller cave above a large underground room,  exiting through an impressive  50 feet abseil, followed by the ascent of two chimneys and ending with an aerial section with a tyrolean traverse. After 10 minutes hike to reach the edge of the mountain, you will discover the amazing sun cave and its pendulum jump above a 30 meters abyss from which you will have to follow an audacious itinerary to return to the surface
The meeting is scheduled at 8 AM or 1 PM at the Guides’ Office at Ganges. Or otherwise directly at the village of Rousses (zip code 48400) at 9:30 AM or 2:30 PM.
