Queste cascate sono tra le più spettacolari della Valle d’Aosta e sono generate dall’omonimo torrente, alimentato dai numerosi laghetti posti all’estremità nord-ovest del ghiacciaio del Rutor.

It is an excursion open to all because it is not particularly long and challenging. Starting from La Joux starts the track, sign (3) and (8 ), to follow. You proceed for a short stretch along the creek and you take you to the opposite bank crossing on a beautiful bridge. In the middle of the woods you go up to the panoramic balcony on the first waterfall of the Rutor (1700m, 0h15'). We continue for turns in the woods, pass next to a characteristic boulder and exit to Parcet. We now proceed on a gentler ascent past another waterfall and arrive at a plateau near the creek, near a bridge. It resumes to climb the path, sometimes paved, until the short detour, to the right, for the second waterfall. You continue to climb and in a few minutes you get to the next detour to the third waterfall, reachable in 3-4 minutes (1996m, 1h10')
Really amazing. The falls are impressive. The hiking need to be prepared because is not so easy for the length and for the gradient. I suggest to take some water with you because till to the refuge is not possible to found any fountain. Take time to climb till the Deffeys refuge will pay you about the fatigue and the high gradient.
Definitely worth the climb. The heart races as you stand on the bridge seeing the water falling at a immense speed.
