The Méouge gorges are located 5 kilometers south of Laragne and are classified as a biological reserve and are a real treasure of the department.
The gorges of the Méouge are designated as a treasure of the Hautes Alpes, bathed in heat and sunshine, and are a famous place for swimming and hiking.
The pebble beach is accessible from several car sites (which run along the course). It is easily accessible and very busy, especially during the summer vacations.
People gather mainly at the entrance to the site, where they can dip their feet in the water and admire the Romanesque three-arched bridge in good condition and the remains of the mill washed away by the flood in 1901. Impossible to miss them, the wreckage is visible from the D942.
Along the way, huge rocks have formed beautiful ivory-colored strata, which have amazed geologists. It seems that some huge stones are kept in balance by mysterious powers. The site also abounds in mountain, Provencal, Mediterranean, Iberian and even Maghrebian plants.
The prices to access the Gorges de la méouge are as follows:
● Free: up to 3 years old
● €2: 4 to 15 years old
● 3€ : from 15 years old
Several activities are offered by the Mouge Gorges. Notably, canoing, deltaplane and paragliding, as well as bicycling and some hiking tours for all tastes.
