Cantal mountains

Cantal mountains

Twenty million years ago, the Cantal Mountains were nothing more than a 3000 meter-high volcano of a 20-kilometer diameter. Liquid and viscous lavas spouted out from several vents. The glaciers of the Quaternary period and the numerous streams levelled off the mountain, shaped its sides, cleared out the sides of the old vents (such as the Puy Riou) and carved out creeks and valleys to give us the marvelous scenery of this hike.
