Day 3 Day 3 Day 3 Day 3 Day 3 Today you leave the surroundings of the river Tarn and go to the east, to Meyrueis at the Westside of the Cevennes. The short variant passes by Le Rozier/ Peyreleau, and then trough the Gorges of the Jonte. If you’re lucky, you can admire the vultures, circling high above your head. In Le Truel it is worth the trouble to stop at the Belvedère des Vautours. This is a sort of museum/information centre about the re-introduction of the vultures in the Gorges.

the 75 km long stage  (1565m alt.) going up the slopes of the Mont Aigoual and cycling down some 24 beautiful kms to St. Jean du Bruel through the Gorges de la Dourbie.
