Geocache Description:


www.tourisme-langres.com

Moins imposante que la tufière de Rolampont, la cascade d’Amorey n’en est pas moins remarquable. Situé dans un massif forestier, la cascade se divise en de nombreuses cascatelles, sous forme de vasques dans lesquelles les eaux se déversent. Elle doit son nom à la pierre poreuse : le tuf. Cette dernière provient d'un dépôt de calcaire dissous lors de la traversée du plateau de Langres. Au contact de l'air et de la végétation, le calcaire se dépose sur les mousses, ce qui finit par créer des petits barrages successifs donnant ainsi naissance à cet escalier naturel. Site en accès libre après 15 min de marche le long du vallon de la Germainelle.

Less impressive than the waterfall of Rolampont, the waterfall of Amorey is not less remarkable there. Situated in a forest massif, the waterfall divides of numerous little waterfalls, in the form of bowls in which waters pour. She owes her name to the porous stone: the tuff. This last one results from a deposit of limestone dissolved during the crossing of the "plateau de Langres". In the contact of the air and the vegetation, the limestone settles on mosses, what eventually creates small successive dams so giving birth to this natural staircase. Site in free access after 15 min of walking along the valley of Germainelle.

Leave your car on the highly-rated of the road before the barrier in coordinated:
