Geocache Description:


Le Barrage du Chastang, mis en service en 1951, reçoit les eaux de la Dordogne et de la Glane de Servières Le Château (en Xaintries).

Le barrage, d’une hauteur de 79 mètres, détient une capacité de retenue de 187 millions de m3. Le Barrage du Chastang est le plus en aval de la Haute Dordogne et la capacité de production de son usine électrique (540 millions de kw/h) est la plus importante de celles des cinq grands barrages de la Dordogne.

Le coin est réputé pour la pêche et la voile. C'est également un endroit dont le calme invite à la quiétude et au repos.

Le belvédère dominant le site permet d'avoir un superbe panorama.

La cache est située à proximité immédiate de ce panorama. Attention, car les abords de la cache sont assez pentus.

Bonne chance !
