Le canyon de Konorchek, piste 4x4 et randonnée

Condition of the route Due to heavy flooding, the track has been damaged and is now level 3 (stones, track subsiding). Also, check the weather forecast as the red sand becomes very slippery in the rain. If you go down to marker 4, the risk of slipping with your car is real and the return journey can be difficult!

Condition of the route The section between points 7 and 9 along the lake is upgraded to a level 4 because of the sand and very sharp and steep, ditch-like hollow. Be careful, check the weather forecast because with the rain, the sandy sections along the lake turn into sticky mud and you risk slipping or getting stuck if you don’t have suitable tyres.
