Dam of Emosson

Finhaut

With its 225 million m3 of water, the Emosson lake is the second largest artificial reservoir in Switzerland! 

The Emosson dam, built between 1969 and 1973, is the keystone of a major hydroelectric complex straddling Switzerland and France, at the Gueulaz pass. Two hydroelectric power stations provide almost 3% of the electricity produced in Switzerland. The wall's vertiginous height of 180m guarantees a great thrill.
