A view from Gorges of the Ardeche (Vallon pont d'Arc).

Gorges of the Ardeche (des gorges de l'Ardéche) is one of the most
important area for the Upper Paleolithic cave art. Today it's covered
with forest, but it is known that it was more steppic at the time of
first artists in the Upper Paleolithic.

Famous Chauvet Pont d'Arc cave is located "somewhere" in this area.
Only archaeologists know its exact location.
