Jura mountains

The Jura is a French department and mountain range. The Plaine jurassienne borders onto Burgundy to the west. Mountains separate the Department from Switzerland to the East. The landscape gradually changes as you move from west to east.


One nice region is the Region des Lacs, containing 9 lakes. It runs from Clairvaux-les-lacs, to Doucier Via Les Frasnois and the Cascades du Herisson.


The cascades are a must see, it is a nature lovers heaven. Falls vary in volume of water with the rain, but range from 60 mts. high to almost flat rapid filled rivers full of both wild and trout.


Le vache qui Rie" was founded in Lons le Saunier, the capital of Jura, and has an interactive museum open to the public.
