6 reasons to visit the rock carvings of Vallée des Merveilles in a French national park


The scenery of the Vallée des Merveilles

The scenery in this high alpine region is stunning, with its rocky cliffs and small lakes. The valleys are also full of the local wildlife, so you are likely to spot chamois, ibex, marmots and a selection of rare birds, including the bearded vulture. While climbing, imagine the lives of the people who travelled here to create the rock carvings anything from 5,000 years ago.
