Presentation of the Salhens Canyon

The Canyon du Sahlens is located on the Caroux mountains, on the western part of the Cevennes. It’s one of the longest canyons. It evolves in a wild and playful environment. It is technical with many rappels from 4 to 30m, some slides up to 5m and jumps not necessarily high but technical. It is ideal to do it during spring or fall. This adventure canyon is accessible from the age of 14 for people in good physical condition.
