And what if you decided to reach for the sky to admire the landscape surrounding you? The Clermontais, is a paradise for hikers and nature lovers of big open spaces. The Mont Liausson and the Pic du Vissou are in the same vicinity even though they have to be climbed differently.
To climb the Mont Liausson, the most classic pathway is the one that leaves the village of the same name which is well-marked and will take you first to the mountain pass of the Portes, and then onto the ridge where there is a stunning 360° view. To the north there is the view over the lake Salagou with its surrounding ruffe; to the south, is the dolomitic Cirque of Mourèze. A magnifique view !
In clear weather, it’s possible to catch a glimpse of the Pyrénées, the Mediterranean Sea, the Larzac and the east of the Pic Saint Loup or even the Mont Ventoux. Just a small suggestion: take your time and enjoy the show !
