Topoguide : Tours du Mont Lozère et du Causse Méjean
This formidable land, carved and divided into limestone plateaux by the powerful elements of nature, stands as one of the area’s major must-sees.
The Gorges du Tarn are located in the Lozère department. The white waters of the Tarn, bluer than those of the Danube, are to be crossed by boat, and so many people travel on these waters that they have given birth to a profession, that of boat masters (bateliers)...
Huge rocks overhang the narrow road that runs along the Tarn river and their peaks sometimes reach the Causses. The Causses, which have been compared to a Gruyère cheese because the ground is full of holes and caves that are the joy of speleologists and attract many visitors.
These Causses are desolate lands, but nevertheless capable of supporting thousands of sheep. These areas have lunar aspects and their charm is undeniable.
In most seasons except summer, you can just about spot one person from afar – often a shepherd wrapped in his vast cape that protects him from the wind, a strong wind that sweeps and shapes the land, as it does in Sauveterre.
