Roundtrip of the Causse Mejean

From Meyrueis to Mas St Chely (Lozere)
57km

The causse Mejean and its 33.000 hectares, and the causse of Sauveterre and its vastness are seperated by the gorges of the Tarn river. An impressive fracture, coming from some jolts and from the ravages of nature became one of the appealing places of the region. Because, it must be said, the gorges of the Tarn are located in Lozere and not in the adjacent department. The strong flow of the Tarn, bluer then the Danube, are traveled by boat and the hikers are so numerous that they give birth to a new profession, the boatmen... Some enormous boulders overlook the narrow road following the banks of the Tarn and their summits sometimes go on the causses. The causses, which we often compare to the gruyere cheese because of the large amounts of holes, sinkholes and caves, delighting the spelunker, attract a lot of tourists. These causses are wastelands, but however they allow the subsitence of thousands of sheep. Some stretches provide several moonscapes, of which the charm is undeniable. Except in the summer time, we rarely meet another human being, and if we do it is a shepherd envelopped in its large cloak for the wind, this wind which, like in Sauveterre, blows the earth along.
