Confluence of Rhône and Arve

During our last visit to the Switzerland, we saw the beautiful confluence of the rivers Rhône and Arve just west of Lake Geneva near the city of Geneva.

A short film of showing the confluence of rivers Rhône and Arve is embedded below and available on my YouTube channel.

The Rhône’s waters are clear and glass like having come from the settled lake. The water of the Arve is cloudy with material carried down from the mountains. These rivers meet here a few kilometres from the centre of the city.

And for those wondering why no-one ever shows the other side of the bridge, there is a railway line that obscures the view.
