262 Route 28. TROIS-PONTS. From Lige
The entrance adjoins the Hotel de la Grotte (admission 3 fr., torches
included; costume for ladies 11/2 fr.; fee to the guide extra). The
consists of an upper and a lower part, to which last a flight of steps
descends, and it is traversed by a brook. Another peculiarity which the
limestone basin of Remouchamps has in common with other similar dis-
tricts is the disappearance of almost all the streams in the neighbourhood,
towards the N., in subterranean clefts or ‘entonnoirs’ (funnels), locally
called ‘chanto The largest of these is the Entonnoir of Adseux, 3M. to
the N. of the village. The traveller follows the road through the romantic
Secheval (‘dry valley’) as far as the village of Deigné (748 ft.), whence a boy
had better be taken as a guide. — From Deigné vid Louveigné to Trooz in
the valley of the Vesdre, see p. 273.
A pleasant walk of 1/2 hr. may be taken over the hills (views) to the
S.W. of Remouchamps and then in the upper valley of the Ambléve to the
prettily situated hamlet of Sedoz (inn) and through the Zrou de Quarreux
(restaurant) to Quarieux (see below).
From Remouchamps to Spa vid La Reid, see p. 279.
Above Remouchamps the river makes a wide bend, which the
railway avoids by a tunnel 678 yds. long. The train then crosses
to the left bank, passes (22!/5 M.) Noncevewx, recrosses the river,
and reaches the Zrou de Quarreuz, a wild rocky caldron, in which
the channel of the Amblave is blocked by innumerable boulders.
25 M. Quarreux. — 261/o M. Lorcé-Chevron is the station for the
mineral baths of Chevron, in the valley of the Ambléve, opened
24/5 M. Stoumont (620 ft.; Hotel de
D. 2, pens. 5-6 fr.).
The road from the station ascends the right side of the romantic
valley of the Ambléve to (3 M.) Stowmont (1090 ft.), where it unites with the
road from Marteau (Spa). It then descends to La Gleize (1000 ft.), a village
on the road from the Géronstére (Spa) to the Waterfall of Coo (p. 279).
The train now keeps to the right bank, commanding a series of
fine views of the picturesque ravine of the Lienne. Upstream is
Targnon, on a hill, through which the line passes by means of a
tunnel. 341/,M. La @leize (see above).
334/o M. Roanne-Coo. — 341/y M. Coo is the station for the
Cascade de Coo, on the Amblive, 4/s M. distant (Hot. de la Cascade,
with terrace and pavilion, frequently crowded in summer, R. 2, B.4,
D. 3, pens. 6 fr.; H6t. Baron, R. 11/5-21/>, pens. 5-6 fr.; Bellevue).
Part of the Ambléve is here precipitated through two artificial
gaps in the rock, made in the 18th cent., while the rest of the water
flows past the openings and reaches the bottom of the rocks by a
circuitous course of 3M. The volume of the cascade is small ex-
cept in spring.
36 M. Trois-Ponts (825 ft.; Hét, Crismer: Hét. des Ardennes),
Junction of the line to Spa and Pepinster (p. 280), a village named
after its three old bridges (over the Ambléve, over the Salm, and
Over another brook), and situated behind precipitous rocks through
which the railway passes.
The line now enters the deep, rocky valley of the Salm or Glain,
passes through a tunnel, and follows the left bank of the stream.
