DAY 5 - Thiézac - Mandailles

An easier days walking today. This rewarding walk into the Vallée du Jordanne offers spectacular views of Puy Mary, Peyre Arse and L’Elanceze. Leave Thiézac and follow the rocky path through woodlands to the Col du Pertus. Your walk now takes you in a generally downhill direction through beautiful meadows awash with wild flowers towards the pretty hamlet of Liadouze. The volcanic peaks that surround you are magnificent. Minor deviations around Liadouze can be made to view the Cascades of Liadouze and Luc. Proceed to the village of Mandailles for your overnight stay.

Set off from Mandailles and follow the beautiful Jordanne Valley before climbing through open meadows towards the base of Griou. You have the option to climb to the summit where you will have a magnificent overall view of the Vallée du Cére summits and habitations. Enjoy the stunning views before crossing the flanks of Puy Griou and descending towards St Jacques des Blats. Look out for the ‘Vacherie du Griou’ en route. From here you continue in a gentle descent back to Les Sources.
