Today we take you to discover the Lillaz waterfalls, a small hamlet of the more famous Cogne.
The starting point for this excursion is Cogne, a charming town full of tourists both in summer and winter, overlooking the valley of Gran Paradiso and enjoying a magnificent 360° view in all seasons.
We suggest you to leave your car at the beginning of the village where you will find a large free parking lot, or towards the center you can find even more comfortable but with a fee.
The view of the Gran Paradiso massif already repays the journey made so far, but today we will not dwell on this view, we will go into the lesser known but equally beautiful part, the village of Lillaz.
This itinerary is particularly suitable for families with children as Lillaz can be easily reached also by car.
The path winds with a slight difference in height of just over 200 meters. You will soon reach the small village of Champlong and then the entrance of Lillaz. This small mountain hamlet is our pass-partout to the waterfalls that you will soon find in front of you; they are a particularly suggestive attraction, from where excursions to higher altitudes depart..
Once you get to the Lillaz waterfalls, you will find yourself admiring a spectacular play of water and colors, created by the power of water falling from its 150 meters high.
Here adults relax and children in the summer have fun in the crystal clear water.
For the more adventurous the path continues and you can observe the falls directly from a pier about 100 meters high.
Your image will be reflected on the mirror of water below: don’t you want to dive?
Nice, aren’t they? Try to come here in winter, you will find a Nordic spectacle: the waterfalls freeze entirely and create a spectacle of crystals, stalactites and stalagmites, unique in its kind.
Trail Type: dirt road
Water: in the two villages you can find water in the local fountains
