Lac de Derborence is a mountain lake in the municipality of Conthey, Valais, Switzerland, located near the hamlet of Derborence. It was formed after rockfalls on 24 September 1714 and 23 June 1749. In 1749, an estimated 50 million m3 of rocks blocked the course of the Derbonne river and led to the formation of the lake.

  • A beautiful place that begins to be too well known but worth the detour and the road that scares:)

  • Feerical place, the ambient inside the forest is just magic, it almost looks like an enchanted fantasy place. You have to follow the small path near the lake to end up there. Would definitely recommend Derborence to any nature lover !
  • This is a lovely spot in canton valais , not too far from Sion if you've a car. Or by post bus The drive up is spectacular; twisting and turning,The lake itself is a sight to behold, and there's a path to walk around it (which we didn't complete) which looks to be very nice, the water at the month of jun was so cold we couldn't swim.
