The highest mountains of this low mountain range The Morvan is an offshoot of the Massif Central. The highest point is the Haut Folin at 901 meters. Followed by the Mont Préneley at 855 where the origin of the Yonne river is located: Sources of the Yonne which you can also hike. At 821, the Mont Beuvray is the third in a row. This mountain also aroused interest in ancient times. The Gauls had a large fortified city there: Bibracte . It is worth visiting the ruins, the actual excavations and the museum.
WaterThere is no shortage of water. The Ambiance Morvan is situated between 2 famous reservoirs: The lake of Pannecière and the lake of Settons. One of them is the biggest in France and the other the oldest. The lake of Pannecière is calm and of more fanciful form with extensive ramifications. The lake of Settons is ideal for water sports. You can also cycle around the lake, passing by the dam, without too much difference in altitude.
