Grottes de Vallorbe, Vallorbe, Switzerland
The Vallorbe Caves a river,a treasure, and a cathedral of incredible sight, sound and ambiance. It’s hard not to be deeply affected by the majesty of the great natural cathedral. The “Son et Lumiere” display is an emotional and beautiful moment to conclude your visit to the caves.
A mysterious river for many years there was the “Upper Orbe” and the “Lower Orbe”. The Upper Orbe springs from the Les Rousses lake, in France. The river then winds its leisurely way (“orb” = curve, circle, bend) before emptying itself into the Joux lake. The Joux Valley is, in fact, one of Central Europe’s most beautiful “closed basins” (i.e. there is no visible outlet for the water).
