Tabardín river waterfall

A walk through the ethnography of eastern Asturias: mills, bridges and old roads that have witnessed the different ways of life in the area at different stages of the history of the council. A very simple and ideal route for families and with plenty of shade to be able to enjoy it also in summer. And to top it all off: a dip in a waterfall or a piece of delicious Gamonéu cheese bought directly from one of the cheese dairies in the area.

Option to do the route returning by the same path from the waterfall or with an extra ascent to the village of Gamonéu.

  • We recommend carrying enough water for the entire route, as there are no drinking water sources along the way. There is a fountain in Demués where you can refill water at the beginning or at the end of the route.
  • It is essential to carry a walking stick for the descent from Demués, which is very slippery even in summer (don’t forget your bathing suit on very hot days!).
