Prehistoric hike: cave and rock engravings (Diois)
from 15 € / p. from 2 to 16 personsInfos & Booking
Ideally located in the south of the Vercors massif, the Haut Diois massif contains secrets that are often unknown.
I invite you here to a very surprising hike on the theme of prehistory to make you know the Tune de la Varaime. This cave, now classified as a historical monument and that I discovered in 1985, contains more than 2000 Neolithic rock engravings classified as belonging to linear schematic art.
This place was also used in prehistoric times as a sheepfold cave as the excavations that you can also contemplate testify.
