We do not recommend taking other items into the canyon as they may be damaged. The buckets do not protect against shocks and are not guaranteed to be 100% waterproof. As far as possible, do not leave valuables in the vehicles, as the various car parks at the activity sites are unguarded. Leave your jewellery and valuables at home. The instructor cannot be held responsible for theft, loss or damage to your own equipment.

We lend each participant :

– a pair of neoprene socks
– a complete neoprene suit
– a harness equipped with gliding pants, lanyards and descender
– a helmet

The instructor takes a backpack, ropes and a waterproof container for the first aid kit, car keys.


The Vallon du Monar is a particularly beautiful day canyon. The water is crystal clear, turquoise and relatively warm. The walls are superbly sculpted, the vegetation is impressive, this world seems magical and heavenly. The entry is done without preliminary with a first waterfall of 23m to cross by abseiling. Entering this dark gorge in this way is breathtaking. Another big abseil of 25m will follow during the descent with a lot of nice slides and small jumps. The whole thing is interspersed with long stretches of walking that will quickly be forgotten if you know how to contemplate the beauty of the place that you discover with each step…

Meeting point

The car park for the meeting point is in the village of Pont de Clans 06420. If you are coming from the bottom of the Tinée valley on the M2205, when you arrive in Pont de Clans, drive another 500m, the meeting point will be on your right next to a bar. If you arrive at a roundabout, you have gone too far.
