At the Sources of the Dordogne in the Massif du Sancy
Birth of the Dordogne in Massif du Sancy
The Dordogne originates on the slopes of the Puy de Sancy, the highest mountain in the Massif du Sancy, by the meeting of several torrents born in the Massifs
The Torrent de la Dore and the Torrent de la Dogne
Rising on the Puy de Sancy Plateau, the Dore rises at 1864 m and joins the Dogne at 1366 m, thus giving birth to the Dordogne.
The other Torrents of the massif that feed the Dordogne
Many streams and torrents flow down the steep slopes of Puy de Sancy in the Massif des Dores. the streams of Val d'Enfer and Val de Courre contribute to and feed the Dordogne.
