Geocache Description:

LE LAC DE MONTCINEYRE

 


FR: Le Lac de Montcineyre est un lac situé à 1182 mètres d’altitude, dans le Massif du Mont-Dore, sur la commune de Compains dans le département du Puy-de-Dôme. Il s’agit d’un lac de barrage formé à la suite de l’éruption du Puy Montcineyre (1331m) : ses coulées de lave ont barré le cours de la rivière qui coulait là il y a de ça 6 millénaires. Ce lac est très reconnaissable grâce à sa forme de croissant et se distingue ainsi de ses nombreux voisins (le Lac Pavin, le Lac Chauvet entre autres). Il s’étend sur 40 hectares et sa profondeur atteint les 18 mètres.
