Datum: 15/11/2020

Do you know the Isbelle underground river?
The source of the Isbelle is located at an altitude of 495 meters south of the hamlet of Laidprangeleux in the town of Rendeux. Then, the stream flows north-west, watering Devantave then passing between Beffe and Magoster before watering Trinal * and Mélines * where it changes direction and turns south-west in a beautiful wooded valley to reach the right bank of the Ourthe between Hampteau * and Hotton * at an altitude of 180 meters.
And when it rains a lot, it is simply magnificent, we invite you to meet at Pont des Gattes:
1km from the center of Hotton * upstream of the Ourthe.
The first fault, and water begins to flow further downstream in the bed of the Isbelle, to get lost in the series of losses of the second fault. The water from these losses feeds the intermittent resurgence of the Isbelle, located about 100 meters from the Pont des Gattes.
When leaving the Tourist Office, turn left, pass in front of the Moulin * Faber. When you get to the Command'rie car park, take the path to the left of the restaurant which will go along the Ourthe to the Rochers de Renissart. Just after the Rochers go up to the hole Fré ’Djame which is above on the right. Continue straight on along the Ourthe and down the lane of the dead to the Pont des Gattes. There, turn left to discover the Resurgence of Isbelle. Continue straight along the meadow and then go up along the woods of the Heblon field. When you reach the asphalt road between Hotton * and Soy, turn left towards Port Aîve.
At the next crossroads, keep your right to go down on the N807, cross and return to Hotton  passing between the 2 cemeteries. Turn left on rue Haie Notre Dame. At the roundabout turn right onto rue du Levant then left, return by the pedestrian path to the left until the Syndicat d'Initiative rue Haute.
The brochure of the promenade de la Pierre with an explanation of the Resurgence of the Isbelle is available at the Tourist Office.
