The Cascade de Combe Noir is a beautiful waterfall at the southern end of the Montjoie Valley south from the Notre Dame de la Gorge. The Montjoie Valley runs from Saint-Gervais to Les Contamines and futher south to the Col du Bonhomme, south-west from Chamonix.
The waters of the Cascade de Combe Noir come from the Torrent de Tre la Tete which is formed at the bottom of the Tre la Tete Glacier. From there the waters flow into the Bonnant river which then flows northwards and meets the Arve near Le Fayet.
The waterfall itself has a nice drop and its beauty comes from the deep gully that that water has cut out in the surrounding rock. It is very similar to the Cascade du Pont Romain which lies further downstream to the west but this one has a bigger water drop. There is a viewing deck and a bridge.
