Spot of Roche Gallet

Among the three dam lakes that follow one another on the Creuse between Jouillat and Bourg d’Hem, the Chézelles lake has remained the wildest. It shelters in particular the otter and the peregrine falcon.

General presentation of the Spot

The lake can be crisscrossed by taking the hiking trail along the right bank travels to the village of Jupille and allows you to go to the rock.

It is a set of rocks that plunge directly into the waters of the dam on the Creuse. An important set of footbridges allows to go from one end to the other.

Access and Parking:

Rochers located in the commune of Bourg d’Hem with access through the village of Jupille in the commune of Anzème. From Guéret (15min) take the D33 direction Anzême, pass Anzême, then direction Le Bourg d’Hem by the D33, then Jupille.
About 10-15mn walk from the parking. When parking, be careful not to disturb the residents. From Jupille, a path descends to the gorges (westward) where the cliffs dominate the Creuse, a footbridge over the EDF lake allows access to the cliff.
