January 31, 2019
Mysterious nature and loneliness in one of the wildest areas of Belgium await you on this hike along the idyllic reservoir of Nisramont.You start your adventurous hike at the Barrage de Nisramont - a dam that has been damaging the Ourthe River for over 60 years. A rocky path takes you to the top and gives you the most beautiful views of the meandering river with its densely forested banks. Here, in the heart of the Ardennes, the eastern and western Ourthe flow to the lake "Le Lac de Nisramont". Now it goes steeply upwards and you climb from rock to rock from the banks of the eastern to the western Ourthe.Narrow switchbacks take you to Point Kwai at an altitude of 275 meters. You cross a tributary of the Ourthe via a rustic wooden bridge. The riverside path along the reservoir brings you very close to the picturesque river before you end your hike at the dam.
