The Cirque de Saint-Même, in the heart of the Chartreuse Regional Park, is truly a place of outstanding natural beauty.
Lying at an altitude of 900 m, the cirque always remains refreshingly cool thanks to four spectacular waterfalls that cascade through the middle of this impressive, 500-m high amphitheatre of Urgonian limestone.
An underground spring, the source of the River Guiers Vif , ensures a constant flow of water to the falls (from top to bottom: Cascade des Sources, Grande Cascade, Cascade Isolée, Pisse du Guiers).
A 1½-hr signposted walking circuit allows you to explore the three lower waterfalls. Another waymarked footpath connects the cirque to Saint-Pierre d'Entremont.
